Well this could have been bad. Chrissy Teigen was walking in NYC on Tuesday, March 27th, when she stepped off a curb without looking both ways. Thankfully, a good Samaritan intervened and prevented her from getting hit by a cyclist. All hail the helpful stranger! (Maybe Teigen will name her second born after him. Okay, maybe not.)

Teigen is currently pregnant with her second child and was being followed by cameras when one of them happened to catch the good deed in progress. The one unfortunate part about the moment, aside from Teigen nearly getting injured, is that based solely on the photos it misleadingly looked as if the stranger was violating Teigen’s personal space. One fan even called the guy a “creeper”on Twitter — and several followed suit.

“Hey @chrissyteigen this looks like you have strapped a very small man to your boob,” one of her fans wrote to her. Chrissy joked back that she already had the baby, but then clarified.

The incident made her fans happy to know that there are still plenty of good people out there.

As for the gentleman in question, who knows if he even knew he was saving a celebrity and would be all over the interwebs the next day. But one thing is definitely for sure: Hopefully Chrissy Teigen will remember to look both ways next time. We need you safe and sound, girl — forever and always.
