Trainee attorney, 25, pays tribute to Messrs Chris Jubank and David Hay for coming to her rescue when she is hit by a Mercedes when she encounters the passage of the two boxing champions.
- The car hit Armandine Boehcola, 25, in Albert Embankment, London
- Eubank, 54, and Haye, 39, happen to be in the area by accident
- Ms Pohecoula said they are a gentleman and they did not hesitate to help
- Eubank played down any suggestion of heroism and said he was performing a civic duty
A trainee attorney praised Messrs Chris Jubank and David Hay for coming to her rescue when she was hit by a Mercedes.
Armandin Buehkula, 25, was hit by a car on Albert Embankment en route to her home in south London on Tuesday when two heroic boxers rushed to her aid.
Eubank, 54, and Hay, 39, were not together and it was a coincidence that the two giants were on hand to wait with the young woman until an ambulance arrived.
Mrs. Pohecoula spoke from home the sun: ‘When I fell on the road someone came to help, I didn’t know who it was. He kept asking, “Are you okay, are you okay?”

Boxers waited until ambulance crews arrived and informed them
“After about ten minutes someone bowed to me and said he was famous. Obviously, I now realize that guy was Chris Eubank.
I was in great pain but he kept telling me help was coming. He held my hand and stayed with me for about twenty minutes.
Then David came and asked if everything was fine and if I was okay. Everything was blurry.
Ms Bohicula said she had severe bruises on her arms and legs but was okay otherwise.
“I just want to thank them for being gentlemen. Lots of people passed by but they didn’t hesitate to help.”
Yubank played down any indication that he was a hero – and insisted he had just done his civic duty with his friend Hay.
Follow-up Team: David Haye and Chris Eubank were on site to help the injured woman
Eubank told The Sun that he heard some bang and was the first to get there and reassure Mrs. Pohecoula on the floor.
Soon after, Hay appeared asking, “Can I help too?”
Hay said he was heading to a meeting in Soho from his South River hotel when he discovered the commotion.
The former heavyweight champion added that Eubank controlled everything in any event, “He’s honest after all,” Hay said.
Eubank is actually a city manager in Opelousas, Louisiana, and has the right to arrest people.
It is not clear if the police are investigating the accident.
