This Driver’s Selfless Act Of Saving A Girl From Drowning Is A Good Example Of Heroism

Published on 23 October, 2018 at 6:42 pm By

When we think of heroism, there are several examples that spring to mind. During the tragic theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado in 2012, three men shielded their girlfriends with their own bodies and laid down their lives. This example shows that good still exists in the world. Clearly, all those are heroes who are willing to make a personal sacrifice for the benefit of others.

Researchers say that some people have personality traits that predispose them to behave in heroic ways. So whenever these people see someone in a difficult situation they tend to act immediately and unconsciously.

 

 

 

Recently, one such case came to limelight in which a delivery boy in China rescued a girl drowning in a canal.

The incident took place at Shaoxing, Zhejiang (China). The six-year-old girl was trying to wash a mop in the canal when she slipped and fell into the water.

After seeing her drowning, the 23-year-old He Linfeng swiftly got off his bike, placed his phone on the ground and dashed into the canal to pull her back to safety. Interestingly, the man again dived into the canal to retrieve the girl’s shoes.

The video of footage of the dramatic incident shows that the girl fell backwards into the river, before struggling to keep her head above water.

The driver told Beijing News:

“I saw movement in the water and was shocked to see a child drowning.”

He added:

“I saw that her shoes were missing. I was wet already anyway, so I decided to go back in to get her shoes.”

 

 

He Linfeng works for MeiTuan, a Chinese food review and delivery service backed by Tencent.

Interestingly, for his heroic act, he was awarded the title of ‘model driver’ by the company, and a cash reward.
