Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney turned hero on his trip to Fylde over the Bank Holiday weekend, helping a man with a broken ankle by "fireman lifting" him off the beach

Manchester United and England legend Wayne Rooney came to an injured man's rescue in Fylde over the weekend by "fireman lifting" him off a beach.

Rooney spent the August Bank Holiday weekend in Lytham St Annes with wife Coleen and their four sons, enjoying a stay at St Annes Beach Huts and Apartments.

The Derby County boss shared a photo on social media of him and his kids inside the huts on Bank Holiday Monday, having also recently enjoyed trips to Thorpe Park and Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

While he was able to enjoy some downtime with his family, Rooney also turned hero when he helped a man with a broken ankle on the beach.

After watching the man cause the suspected injury by jumping off the promenade and onto the beach, St Annes Beach Huts and Apartments owner Stuart Robertson revealed that Rooney came to his rescue.

"He jumped over and fireman lifted the guy off the beach and helped him," Robertson told

"They were amazing, the family, the Rooney family took care of this injured lad".

Robertson said Rooney and his family stayed on the Fylde seafront until 10:30pm, adding: "They'd had a really full day, got hounded, but they must be used to it. They do get recognised a lot."

He also said: "They were just wonderful guests, they were really really nice, just a normal family having a day out at the seaside.

"Obviously they got recognised a lot, that was a worry for us because we just wanted them to come and have a normal day, the same as all our other guests.

"But obviously, they do get recognised but they were just so patient and they went out of their way to take selfies with children or any mum's and dad's who wanted it."

Rooney visited the Lancashire borough following his Derby side's 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest last Saturday.

It has been a difficult start to the season for the Rams, who have only claimed one win in their first five Championship games.

Their next outing comes away at Birmingham on September 10 after this week's international break.
