A man who was decked by a coward punch while on a night out in Sydney, and said he feared for his life, was rescued by a trio of unlikely saviours.
Ivan Flinn, 34, from Surry Hills, said that during the attack earlier this month he hoped someone would come to his rescue, and help did arrive but not in the form he expected.
“I am a bit religious and I really thought I was going to die, I was praying for a hero and I got three angels,” he said.
Those “angels” were three drag queens by the names of Coco Jumbo, Ivy Leaguee and Vybe, who stepped in after a night performing on the stages in Sydney’s neighbourhood of Darlinghurst, known for its large gay population and venues.
Luke Karakia, who performs under the name Ivy Leaguee, ended up getting injured scuffling in the middle of the road with one of the alleged attackers, but nevertheless, his frocked-up alter ego didn’t think twice before stepping in.
Mr Flinn is so grateful to the three for racing in to his rescue he’s helped raise $1000 to help them pay for their wigs and high heels that were damaged in the fracas.
