Homelander made another heroic save today, stopping a hijacked armored truck, then staying behind for a photo op with some very lucky fans.
(This line is from an American superhero television series. A reporter says this sentences on the news. "Homelander" is an superhero. + Photo op means: Photo opportunity. )
Does "staying behind for a photo op" count as a heroic save? I am having a hard time understanding the reason why the marked participle phrase is being used.
Isn't this version is better.:
..., then stayed behind for a photo op with some very lucky fans.
