Superman Saves Date-Rape Drug Victim, Vanishes

A 23-year-old marketing executive Paul Longmire saved a 26-year-old lady Elizabeth in Lancashire, after she fell unconscious after her drink was spiked with date-rape drug substance thought to be Rohypnol, reports The Sun, London.  The two are now friends of the Facebook.

The mum of one collapsed in a bar when her drink was spiked with the date-rape drug.

But she was carried safely to an ambulance by the mystery hero who then vanished - leaving her wrapped in his Superman red cape, the only clue to his identity.

After recovering from partial paralysis in hospital, Elizabeth, 26, made an appeal to track down her Superman using the local paper in her hometown of Wigan, Lancs.

Modest hero Paul Longmire came forward. He had been out with pals in the costume borrowed from a friend.

The marketing executive, 23, said: "We saw Elizabeth stumble and go down face first. I tried supporting her but her legs kept giving way so I just picked her up and carried her outside before the ambulance came. She was shivering so I wrapped my cape around her then left. It wasn't heroic. I just helped someone."

Married Elizabeth, who had been out with pals and her sister, said: "I'd drunk three drinks when I collapsed. I woke hours later in hospital.

"Doctors were certain I'd been spiked, probably with Rohypnol or maybe GHB. I was determined to find who Superman was to say thanks and return his cape. Now we're pals on Facebook. I dread to think what could have happened without him."
