London, England — What is Bill Murray not capable of doing? According to Fox News and NBC, that is the question being asked by London residents and police today as Murray saved the life of a 9-year-old girl from certain death after he pushed her out of the way at the last second of a semi-truck that was barreling down on the young girl at full speed.

36-year-old Paul Horner, who is in London on business, witnessed the near fatal accident, and told the BBC News about what he saw.

“Yeah, it was horrifying. I saw this little girl standing in the middle of road on her phone and this truck was just going full speed, right towards this poor girl. Then out of nowhere this man pushed her out of the way at the last second saving her life,” Horner said. “So I ran over to them to see if they were alright and to my amazement I see that the girl was perfectly fine and the guy who saved her was none other than Bill Murray! It was Bill frickin’ Murray who saved this kids life!” Horner continued, “That guy is always doing something awesome whether it’s making movies, playing golf with the pros, crashing random parties, bartending with RZA and GZA from the Wu Tang Claneating french fries off the tables of random people or saving lives! He’s everywhere!”

9-year-old Courtney Groves from Bristol, England told reporters about her near death experience.

“I was just playing Zombie Playground, it’s like my favorite game, and wasn’t paying attention to the cars around me. Thank you Mr. Murray for saving my life today,” Groves said. “He even sat down with me and helped me finish the level I was playing. We got a perfect score! He told me that he was in a movie years ago about a zombie, just like my game! I didn’t know what he was talking about but Bill Murray liked my game and he saved my life so I thought that was really neat!”

Murray spoke briefly to reporters about the incident.

“I’m no hero, I was just in the right place at the right time. I think anyone else in my position would have done the same,” Murray said. “Courtney is a great kid. We talked for a while. She even let me play her game on her phone. I told her the next time you wanna play video games, don’t do it in the middle of traffic.”

Tweet from Boris Johnson the Mayor of London about Bill Murray

25-year-old Brian Barth who is a game developer on the Zombie Playground™ team told CNN that he is thrilled the child was not injured.

“It’s an amazing thing that Bill Murray was there to save her life.” Barth said. “It feels really good when someone plays a game you helped create, had a hand in developing; it’s just not a game meant to be played in the middle of traffic, that’s for sure, well unless Bill Murray is there,” Barth laughs.

Boris Johnson who is the Mayor of London told reporters how proud he is to have Murray currently in his city.

“This is a day for everyone in London to celebrate Bill Murray,” Johnson said. “Most blokes would have just stood there like an arse and let that poor girl get run over, but not Mr. Murray. So it is decided, for his bravery we are throwing him a parade and awarding him a key to the city. Today is Bill Murray day in London!”

Murray was in London visiting friends and sightseeing when this near-tragic event took place. Murray says he plans to stay in London for another week and then is off to Japan to finish up work on a new project. Police say alcohol was a factor in this near-fatal tragedy.

    Bill Frickin’ Murray!!!

  2. Sarah H. says:

    I’m so glad that little girl is ok. Parents need to keep their kids out of the street. What was she doing in the middle of the road in the first place?

      I dunno, it’s England. Kids run that country I think

      • Sampson says:

        I don’t think that info is correct. I’ve seen adults over there before driving cars and doing other adult type stuff. I could be wrong though

    *Bing bong!* Who’s there?


    Bill, who?

    Bill frickin’ Murray!

  4. Susan Miller says:

    Today I learned what a mulligan is. Can you get those outside of golf? Like a marriage or kids for example?

  5. Phil Connors says:

    I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, we made love like sea otters.

    *That* was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t I get *that* day over, and over, and over…

    If you gotta shoot, aim high. I don’t wanna hit the groundhog.

    I wanna play Fairway Solitaire. I like playing games on Facebook. Candy Crush Saga is pretty good. I like Farmville a lot too

  9. I love Bill Murray! says:

    Bill Murray is the coolest guy on the planet. He does whatever he wants, whenever he wants to… people love the sh*t out of him. He can pick and choose what movies he wants to be in. And then he’s always doing awesome stuff like playing golf with pros and crashing random parties in New York of just regular people (not famous people)… and now he saves the life of this 10-year old girl. WHAT, A, BADASS!

  10. Bill Murray says:

    “No one will ever believe you. Also, can I play your iPod game there for a second? Thanks.”

  11. Laura Collins says:

    This is so great! Bill Murray never ceases to amaze me.

  12. Don’t get me wrong, I like Bill Murray and his movies just as much as the next person. But the following story really concerns me. These Facebook games, like the one this little girl was playing, are nothing more than a gateway drug to masturbation. Especially this Fairway Solitaire game that she was playing; a game that encourages you to play with balls so you can earn points. Are you serious? Why doesn’t this 10-year-old just quite school now, get a pimp and start hooking? Makes me so sick!
