Being a young woman being stuck out late at night can be a scary thing and not to mention pretty dangerous, so it is no shock that when young lady, Nicole Sedgebeer found herself stranded in London it is no shock she was pretty panicked and not to mention scared, which is when the last person she expected to step in helped her and made sure she was completely safe.
When Nicole Sedgebeer’s train arrived at Euston in Central London, she found she had missed the final train to take her home, which led to her bursting into tears and flurry of panic as she had no idea what to do. She couldn’t just wait inside the station for the first-morning train as the station had been locked up and a taxi home would have soon racked up a giant meter so she basically had no options left. This was until a nearby homeless man came to see why this girl was so upset and to see if he could help her.
She explained her story on Facebook to try and show other people not to discriminate towards homeless people as without this man she does not know what might have happened to her. She explained in a Facebook post saying,
Last night I missed my last train home and when I finally got to Euston to wait till the morning, the station was locked. Just as I was about to burst into drunken tears I met my homeless friend Mark. He said he would take me to a cafe that was open as it was too dangerous to walk by myself. He left me after a coffee and a chat and explained that he had to go get his sleeping bag but he would be back at 5 to walk me back to the station. (Me being a typical girl didn’t believe he would come back) It got past 5 and he was a no show. As I got round the corner my homeless friend Mark was running down the street towards me. Not only did he turn up but he had to get a bus to come get me. This man who I probably would have avoided eye contact with if he asked for spare change, completely changed such a negative event into the most eye-opening event in my life.”
She ended her status with a thanks saying, “Mark you are one special man, I will never look down on a homeless person again.”
