Man City Fan Hailed A Hero
Blues fan Andrew Dempsey contacted Vital Manchester City asking if we could bring the following acts of heroism to the attention of as many City supporters as possible.
The story centres on Marine Sergeant Noel Connolly, from Fallowfield in Manchester and his truly heroic actions whilst serving a tour of duty in Afghanistan.
A true hero
Noel, 41 is alleged to have rugby tackled a suicide bomber and in doing so saved dozens of colleagues when he threw himself at the Taliban fanatic as he approached an army base in Afghanistan pushing a motorcycle.
