The American woman who saved Bono after his bike crash earlier this year in New York, was booed off stage at a U2 concert last night.

While playing in Madison Square Garden in New York, Bono invited a number of guests on stage who helped him during the difficult time, including the woman who initially phoned for assistance after his crash, and the firefighters who came to his rescue.

Bono broke a number of bones in his body after crashing off his bicycle in Central Park, including some in his hands and face. The U2 frontman feared he would never be able to play guitar again, but made a quick recovery thanks to the hasty actions of those around him at the time.

Speaking to the audience last night, Bono said, “I am here today because when I crashed my bike here in the city, a beautiful girl made a phone call to 911. She’s from Denver, but she’s here tonight. So is Engine 44, the firefighters that picked me up off the ground.”

Unfortunately, Bono got a few details wrong about the woman, and she was very clearly unimpressed with her introduction.

When handed the microphone, the woman said, “So I have to clarify, it’s Alyssa and I’m from D.C., not Denver. Here’s what happened: I was running in Central Park, there was an accident. Obviously I had to stop and help because I’m not from New York, I’m from Virginia, where people are nice.”

She was booed off the stage before she could get another word out.
