How Bono Saved Me

The Sun, July 01, 2005

 

The girl who Bono famously saved from being crushed at Live Aid has spoken for the first time about her incredible moment -- 20 years on.

Kal Khalique was just 15 when Bono saw she was being overwhelmed by the Wembley crowd. The U2 legend leapt off stage and pulled her free -- then smooched with her as his band played on.

Kal, of Hampstead, North London, said: "The crowd surged and I was suffocating -- then I saw Bono.

"Security helped him pull me out, then he held me and we danced. My heart was pounding."
