A woman has paid tribute to a man who was crushed by violent wrath while safely walking to her car after working in a nightclub.
Charlie Taylor, 20, walked around Central Auckland on Saturday morning around 4am when she realized that someone was following her to whom she said she had a long night and kept walking.
& # 39; When I realized what was happening, I did what they always taught you at school and approached a stranger and told them the situation and he offered to walk with me to my car & # 39 ;, Taylor told Stuff .

That stranger has since been identified as Mike Garner who visits Auckland from the UK and stays with his sister, Claire.
He happened to be across the street from Beach Road and offered to carry Taylor's bags and escort her to her car.
The man who had followed her, whom she had described as large and had a large construction, caught up with them and began to work aggressively against the couple before hitting Garner so hard that he was beaten unconscious and sent to the hospital.
I just want him to know how bad I am to let him be involved and how grateful I am that he saved my life, I had no idea what the man behind me was capable of and if not for Mike I may not be there, Mrs. Taylor said.
& # 39; He is the most courageous person I have met and that myself, my friends and family will remember him for the hero he is. & # 39;
Mr. Garner was attacked by the man while walking Taylor to her car after the two ignored his repeated questions.
He kept asking us all these questions and we were like yes, we are together, this is my friend and he just came to pick me up – just leave me a little free. He walked back and spoke to us. We tried to ignore him and laugh at it and said that we are just going to go now & # 39 ;, she told the New Zealand Bode.
That's when Ms. Taylor said the man just grabbed Mike at the back of the neck and slapped him three times.
He was completely unconscious, his eyes were open and rolled behind in his head. He made this terrible sound as if he were trying to breathe, but he could not. I called 111 and then stopped breathing, so I did CPR on him. & # 39;
Mike regained consciousness when the ambulances arrived and he was taken to the hospital.

Taylor promised to meet him in the hospital while he was placed in the back of the ambulance but could not find him when she came to visit that morning later.
She has been back every day since then to find him.
Taylor said that she has a number of items that are his and she feels that she urgently needs the closure of this incident.
Now that the full name of Mr. Garner has been revealed, she hopes to contact him very quickly.
