Morrissey comforts sick woman at New York store
Singer Morrissey turned Good Samaritan at the weekend when he tended to an elderly lady who collapsed in a bookstore.
The former The Smiths frontman was browsing shelves at New York City's famed Strand Bookstore on Sunday when a frail customer standing nearby was taken ill.
The rocker knelt down to comfort the confused woman and offered to fetch her some water before staff came to her aid.
An onlooker tells Queerty.com, "He picked up her stray belongings and asked if he could get her some water or call for help. She declined and collected her things and moved on. But my friend said she touched Morrissey's cheek in gratitude!
"Obviously, she didn't know who he was, just was touched by this act of kindness from a nice British man. He seemed very shaken up and flustered by the incident and left the store soon afterwards without buying anything."
