As. Mr. Rogers said, "Look for the helpers."

A homeless man who frantically pulled nails and glass from injured people's faces after the Manchester, England, bombing on May 22 has been awarded a place to live for his bravery. Stephen Jones, 35, is a former bricklayer who has been homeless in Manchester for more than a year, said, "I realized what was happening and saw children running out, screaming and covered with blood. It wasn't until Jones wiped away debris from their faces that he saw the extent of their injuries. "I wouldn't have been able to live with myself if I just walked away," he explained.

Jones courage attracted the attention of David Sullivan and his son David Jr., of the West Ham United Football Club. The son tweeted, "Me and my dad want to rent the homeless man in Manchester a house tax-free for six months to help him get on his feet. If anyone can help us get in touch, much much appreciated. Such a selfless act needs rewarding." The Sullivans quickly found Jones, and he is no longer homeless.
