According to Metro.co.uk, the 33-year-old was arrested and charged with stealing the card from Pauline Healey as she lay injured following the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22nd.

Telegraph.co.uk is reporting that Chris Parker is being charged with two counts of theft, from May 22nd.

A fundraising page set up to help him raised more than 50,000 pounds (AU$82,250).

"There was people lying on the floor everywhere", he recounted, adding that a woman had died in his arms and had come to the rescue of a little girl whose mother had been killed.


Police said: 'The charges relate to a bank card being stolen from the Manchester Arena on the evening of 22 May 2017'.

Ms Healey's 14-year-old granddaughter Sorrell Leczkowski was among the 22 people killed in the suicide attack by Salman Abedi on 22 May.

"The money is given as a gift so it's up to them what they do with it."

He said he was knocked to the floor by the explosion but immediately got back up to help the injured, gaining worldwide attention for his actions.


Mr Parker also revealed how he hadn't stopped crying after the woman died as he held her. Anyone concerned about their donation should contact us at gofundme.com/guarantee'.

Manchester Arena's general manager James Allen said in a statement: "May's events will never be forgotten, but they will not stop us - or Mancunian music fans - from coming together to enjoy live music".

Set up in the aftermath of the terrorist attack, the fund has since raised more than $23 million from members of the public with the help of Grande, who raised funds through the One Love Manchester benefit concert she hosted in the city in June.
