Strangers hold disabled fan up to see his favorite country star
July 13, 2012
Patrick was at a concert to see his favorite Country star, Blake Shelton, but had trouble seeing anything from his wheelchair. The only view he had was of legs and backs standing in front of him. That's when he broke down and began crying.
Two strangers standing near Patrick noticed how upset he was and they decided to make a difference. They walked over and hoisted him up out of his wheelchair, raising him above the crowd. Patrick could finally see Blake Shelton performing his favorite tunes.
According to Patrick's family members who were at the concert, the men lifted him up for over 20 minutes in the hot sun. Dripping in sweat and exhausted from the 100 degree heat, these heroes held Patrick up as long as they could.
Prior to this, Patrick's mother, Cheryl Connelly, and his sister tried to lift Patrick for a better view but fell short. It was too hot and they were not strong enough.
"I can't thank them enough and what that meant for my family, and especially for Patrick, for what it meant for him to be able to see that," Connelly said. "It brought tears to my daughter and myself."
Not only did they help his view from afar, they took Patrick to the front of the stage for the best view in the entire place. Patrick even shook Blake's hand.
After the concert, Blake Shelton invited Patrick backstage to hang out. Patrick went from crying in his wheelchair, unable to see anything, to meeting his hero in person backstage. All of this happened because of two heroes that took it upon themselves to make someone's day.
