People rushed out of shops and cafes to free unicyclist trapped under double decker


Heroic bystanders came to help the dreadlocked victim who is believed to be in his twenties. Together they all managed to lift slightly off the ground the 12-tonne double decker. With the help of close to a hundred people that pushed the bus the man was pulled from under the bus. He was taken to a nearby hospital in a serious condition.

Witnesses from the scene related what they saw: ‘I was holding his jacket and the bus driver moved the bus a bit. He was crying… Then a hundred people were on top of me helping and I was telling the man to come out, but he was too heavy.
‘All of a sudden another man came and pulled him out… I’m really amazed at the strength of Walthamstow – no one hesitated to push the bus off, I was in shock. Everyone really came together to help – it was really nice to see that in the face of something so awful.”
