Spider-Man to the Rescue

On 26 September 2015, Stephen Grant, age 39, accidentally cut off his finger in a lawnmower. His partner, Lucy Day, age 36, who is from Eastbourne, Sussex, England, and was pregnant, attempted to drive him to a hospital, but their car, which was also carrying their three-year-old daughter, Millie, burst into flames. Fortunately, Spider-Man came to the rescue — or at least a man dressed in a full-body Spider-Man costume did. Lucy said, “You have to laugh when you are having a bad day and suddenly you see that. I did think it was a bit strange, but in the heat of the moment I wasn’t really thinking about it.” The man in the Spider-Man costume was children’s entertainer Tom Roch, age 24, who was going to a children’s party, accompanied by his girlfriend, Kelly Bayman, age 30. He said, “We could smell unburnt petrol and could see smoke pouring out from under the car. It was like something out of an action film, I was expecting the car to explode at any second. We tried flagging them down, and when they stopped, I was shouting at them to get away from the car. We called them over to us, and they got in the car. She was saying, ‘We need to go to hospital’, so we drove over there as quick we could. All this while I was dressed in a full-body latex Spider-Man costume.” Doctors at Eastbourne District General Hospital successfully reattached Stephen’s finger. Lucy said, “We are so grateful for their help. He was only a young guy, and I think he was a bit shaken up by the whole thing. I really want him to know how much it meant. I also want to thank Steve from the A and E who took me and my little girl to the shops to get some sweets while we were in the waiting room. It was such a little thing, but it made a really big difference to us.”
