David Beckham Brings Hot Drinks to Paramedic and Patient on London Street

David Beckham made a career out of providing world-class assists. Now, he's providing vital assists for emergency service workers. 

According to Hannah Al-Othman of the London Evening Standard, paramedic Catherine Maynard was treating an elderly patient near London's Euston railway station when the former Manchester United star walked by. Beckham promptly returned to the scene with hot drinks:

I was waiting with my patient for an ambulance to transfer him to hospital and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside.

All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car.

I said to the man I was treating, "I think that was David Beckham."

Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient.

We were both very amused, and flattered. It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn’t believe it when he came back with some hot drinks—I was so chuffed.

Becks even posed for a picture after his altruistic deed.
