Stephen Jones said he heard a huge bang, which he initially thought was a firework. The hero described how he pulled nails out of children’s bodies shortly after the bomb went off.
His actions caught the attention of David Sullivan and his son who set out to track down the 35-year-old so they could reward him for his bravery.
Thanks to the power of social media, Sullivan was successful in finding Steve.
A crowdfunding page was also set up in Steve’s honor after his heroic actions came to light and it has already raised more than £18,000.
