    Heroic Deeds Thread

    After reading that thread about the guy who drowned and no-one came to his aid, got me thinking of this.

    Here's my biggest act of Heroics

    You might wanna play one of these You Tube Vids while reading it





    I lived in a top floor Maisonette once, there was a big fat woman who lived downstairs with 4 kids from different fathers. The kids were aged 2 to 12

    One night I could smell burning, the next thing the 12 year old kid is knocking my door down, saying there's a fire downstairs. i ran down there in just my jeans, entered the house, saw smoke coming from a bedroom, which was locked, so I kicked the door in where 2 nippers had made a fire, got them outside, went to the kitchen and filled the bowl up which was taking ages, until I realised it was a strainer, checked the place was empty then went outside and waited for the fire brigade.

    Then my son mentions his rabbit on the balcony so I climb the balcony and rescue the rabbit too.
    The mother of the 4 kids I later found out was down the pub while the kids were torching the place, she got back when the Local press and Fire Brigade were there and told them she had popped to the shop.

    I didn't talk to the press that night, but the next day in the Local Rag is a picture of the 12 year old with the words Hero and mentioning how he saved his brother and sister from the fire.

    As it stands I say I wouldn't get involved again, but you can never say "never".
    First case for me is where I was driving down a by-pass road and I saw a person (turns out to be a woman) throw herself over an over-pass. I stopped my truck and ran across 4 lanes of traffic. How the fcuk I never got run over is another thing. I find the woman bleeding badly from the head. I cleared her mouth and put her in the recovery position. Nobody stopped to help, I then I had no choice but to leave her and do traffic control. Within 15 minute the place was swamped with armed response units and the woman was whisked off in an ambulance. No police officer requested a statement from me even after volunteering it to one, but he wasn't interested. He just took my name and address. I was never contacted, and to this day know nothing more of this incident.
    Second case was when I tried to board a bus and this big pissed up paddy was saying to the driver "give us some money". The driver just sat there and people couldn't get on. So I just said "are you goin to pay your fare or not ?". He turned round and said "I'm goin to fcuking kill you". I stepped back off the bus and he followed me. I couldn't do anything as I was loaded up with shopping. As soon as we were off the bus everyone piled on and the driver closed the door and drove off leaving me waltzing around with this drunken cnut in the middle of a shopping center. Did anyone come to my aid in both incident ? No, so fcuk 'em I won't get involved again. Or will I ?

    I pulled an attempted suicide out of the North Sea on a winter's evening back in 1985. The rocks where she was wading into has the meanest rip and she would've been gone in a matter of seconds. So many people told me then and since that I shouldn't have dived in, and looking back I shouldn't have, especially as I knew how dangerous that area was (I lived at the top of the beach for 20 years and saw the big yellow rescue helicopter many a time hovering over the point), however you do act on impulse; it's not a situation you can plan for.

    I've sat in both the Park Lane and Bobby Moore stands and clapped the opposition.

    At Wathgill Army Camp, Catterick, myself and other platoon members successfully saved over 30 cadets from an early morning IRA poisonous gas attack. The cadets were from a different regiment and billeted in the floors above us. We all ran into their dorms wearing ancient gas masks screaming 'gas attack', we dragged them out of bed and threw them down the stairwells into the central courtyard. We got them to jump up and down in a 'pogo' fashion so as to keep their heads above the gas. We then disappeared back into our rooms just as the MPs arrived, where they met the sight of 30 blokes half naked jumping up and down (with one guy struggling to put his turban on!) at 3 in the morning.

    (The bastards got us back though; when we returned from a 48hr exercise we found a sheep in one of our dorms, chained to a radiator with two days of shit and piss covering the floor.)

    1993: North London, on our way back from a party at 3am, about five of us, we were about 20 years old.

    We hear a woman struggling and some muttering in a hidden part of this small park we were cutting through, and there's a woman being raped.

    ''It's ok, she's my wife'' were the guys first words

    ''You won't mind if we call the police then, will you?'' We replied. He was trapped, as he was in a secluded dead end part of the park. We held him until the cops come, it wasn't his wife, and he got done for rape.

    We all got letters of commendation.

    I once successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver on my cousin, who started choking while we were having lunch in a fairly busy restaurant. It all seemed so calm and casual, to the point that only a couple other diners even noticed it, and we merely sat down after and picked up the conversation where we left off. It was a bit surreal really.

    Are everyday deeds of decent acts considered heroic?

    Some see it simply as foolish.

    I once saw a drunken man harassing a young woman with a baby in the tube and told him to let her alone. I was then told by a man twice my strength that I should not intervene.
