An overexcited One Direction fan recently took a spill while vying for a spot to see 1D’s Harry Styles while he took in New York City. For the record, there’s no shame in that. Seeing the boys up close would make us faint, too.

What makes this story notable is that the fan in question was rescued from the pressing crowd by Harry himself. He rescued her, you guys. Like he’s actually Prince Charming.

Upon noticing he’d made the girl weak in the knees, Harry bends down to give her a hand as documented by one of the dozen of cameras flashing on the sidelines. The boy bander then briefly chats his new gal pal up, makes sure she’s okay (despite the blushing and stammering, of course), and poses for a photo before leaping back onto his stallion...um, we mean he keeps walking like a normal person.

If life were a rom-com, that fateful trip would have been the first step in Harry and the lady in question falling madly in love. The world would have slowed down and sweet music would have played as Harry and Superfan locked eyes. Cartoon hearts would have been involved. Then would have come the whirlwind romance perpetually complicated by a certain flaxen-haired country superstar ex of Harry’s but the 1Der’s new love would have eventually triumphed…

Sorry, sorry. Total Harry Styles fanfic tangent. Guess we just wish that was the story of his life.
