Medical superheroes have been getting much love and praise on Twitter for times when they step in to help in emergencies – outside of their usual workplace.
Tales of people springing into action followed when one Twitter user shared what she saw at London Bridge railway station.
Lottie Richie heard an announcement for a doctor and described how “a woman near me looked at the guy she was with and just handed him her coffee and then RAN like a superhero it was amazing”.
And it turns out Lottie is not the only one to witness these superheroes in action.
The stories are varied – a nurse on her way to a birthday party, a minibus full of police officers on a training day – but they all have one thing in common: Those retelling the tales all do so with a sense of pride.
So just who are these heroes?
The exercise class hero
The firefighting heroes
The slick nurse
The mum with a coffee to finish
The off-duty bobbies
The mystery oil rig nurse
For those who do this sort of work all day every day, it might be nothing, but for the rest of us, it’s a chance to witness something spectacular.
Meanwhile, there were people who aren’t medically trained sharing how they could help in an emergency of a different type.
