Mike Tyson Comes To Aid Of Injured Motorcyclist In Las Vegas
Here's a feel good story to liven up the day. Heard about this recently. Very cool to see him thank Mike like that. Nice gesture both ways. There's a theory that when there is a greater cause people come together regardless of age, race, sex, or religion to help. This is a small example. I bet there were tons of bystanders, but it was Mike Tyson who got there first. This reminds of the time we heard a jeep flip over about a year ago and we all rolled outside...strangers were gawking, but only one of our guys thought to go next to the flipped over jeep to ask the teenagers if they were alright. Luckily they were, nothing serious...just a bit shell shocked.
A couple weeks after Mike Tyson made headlines for directing a profanity laced tirade at a Canadian journalist, “Iron Mike” is back in the news -- this time on a more positive note.
According to a report in the NY Daily News, Tyson assisted 29-year-old Las Vegas resident Ryan Chelsey after a cab cut off his motorcycle and caused him to crash on I-15 North off Flamingo Road on Tuesday night.
According to the report, Tyson and three other friends came to Chelsey’s aid, blocking off traffic while the former heavyweight boxing champion attempted to comfort the victim. Chelsey was able to snap a cell phone picture of Tyson and provide it to TMZ.com.
Stephen Stubbs, Chelsey’s attorney, told the Daily News that his client suffered a paralyzed big toe, broken ankle and torn muscles and ligaments as a result of the accident.
“He looked up and saw Mike Tyson,” Stubbs told the Daily News. “He was saying, ‘Don’t worry, don’t worry, people are coming.’”
It is unclear how long Tyson was at the scene. Chelsey later sent Tyson a fruit basket and thank-you note for his kindness.
“Thank you so much for looking over me after my accident,” it read. “It has to be the most reassuring thing in the world to have Mike Tyson telling people not to touch me.”
