It appears that Sons of Anarchy’s Tommy Flanagan (Filip “Chibs” Telford), is a real life hero, and he had some help. On Sunday, May 29, 2016, he and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie star Alan Ritchson teamed up to perform a real life rescue mission and save a man from an overturned truck. It happened in Houston, TX – where Tommy was leaving to return home from the Space City Comic Con.
The truck had blown a tire while traveling on the highway, and flipped. Jonathan Elder, the driver of the truck, said that Tommy and Alan had rushed to get his brother, who was unconscious, out of the passenger seat of the truck. They’d reportedly used a crowbar to free the helpless man right before the truck became engulfed in flames. Tommy and Alan received medical assistance for the man from their own driver, a Military Veteran named Paul, and Tommy shared this heartwarming Tweet shortly after the ordeal:
News agencies are calling Tommy, Alan, and Paul “The Dream Team” following their heroic actions.
