Daniel McConnell has become an Australian hero overnight after he was woken by his wife around 2am on Thursday. A car had crashed into the awning of a fish and chip shop down the road from his Hendra home and Daniel was there to save the day!
Daniel McConnell recounted to Today reporter Jessica Millward how he snapped into action, chasing down the man who had just about destroyed his mate’s mum’s shop.
The entire interview is phenomenal but one of our fave lines would have to be:
“But mate, all I had was me jocks on and I’m chasing him up the street and I’m just like, mate!”
With Daniel’s assistance, police were able to catch the driver who has since been charged with one count of unlicensed driving.
