A young man who fled Saturday’s terrorist attacks with a pint of beer in hand has become something of an internet hero.
The photo, which has been retweeted over 28,000 times, features the man fleeing from the scene with a pint of beer in hand. For some, the photo provided a moment of profoundly dark comedy on a day otherwise entirely colored by tragedy.
“People fleeing #LondonBridge but the bloke on the right isn’t spilling a drop. God Bless the Brits!” Howard Mannella, who posted a photo of the tweet, wrote.
People couldn’t help but feel a little twinge of pride upon seeing a fellow Londoner refuse to leave his beer behind, despite the danger around him.
Seven people have died as a result of the London Bridge Terror attack and 48 others are being treated for injuries.
