As chaos erupted in and around the Manchester Arena, a woman hailed as “the angel of Manchester” sprang into action — corralling dozens of terrified teens to safety.
Bystander Paula Robinson, 48, of West Dalton, was with her husband at a train station when the suicide bomb exploded Monday night in the foyer of the arena where Ariana Grande had just finished a sold-out show.
Robinson saw the young screaming fans fleeing the arena and stayed by their side.
“We ran out,” said Robinson, according to the Daily Mail. “It was literally seconds after the explosion. I got the teens to run with me.”
Robinson then took about 50 girls to a nearby Holiday Inn Express hotel and posted her phone number on social media so that panicked parents could contact her to be reunited with their children.
“We have about 50 kids with us waiting to be picked up they are safe we will look after them,” Robinson posted, according to screenshots.
Another post read, “Please re post for any parents with children at m.e.n we have taken as many kids as we can to holiday Inn we will keep them safe and stay with them.”
According to the Daily Mail, Robinson said, “Parents were frantic running about trying to get their children.”
The good Samaritan was hailed online for her heroic efforts.
