This Pinoy hailed a hero after saving a Korean seafarer who fell into the sea.
When we were kids, even until now, we love to watch superhero movies. As a kid, this kind of movie stirs up our passion for saving people and dream of having this kind of power or skill. But nowadays, we have this new image of a hero. Not having any superpower or amazing skill but only a good heart.
We cannot mention every Filipino who became a hero by sacrificing themselves for the country, those who made good deeds for their fellowmen, or even just a simple gesture of giving food to the poor. Our today’s heroes are not wearing capes nor superpowers but only a heart to help and to save.
Recently, another Pinoy hailed as a hero after jumping into the dangerous sea to save a Korean seafarer who accidentally fell into the sea. The Korean fell into the water while their ship is anchored in Indonesia. Not only that, he didn’t also accept the monetary rewards his colleagues give to him. WOW!
According to the ABS-CBN report, due to big waves and rough sea, other crews had a hard time saving the Korean seafarer. The Filipino hero identified as Vrose Santillan and other fellow workers didn’t hesitate to jump into the water to save the Korean.
Thankful for what the Pinoys did to him, the Korean seafarer tried to give money as a reward but they refuse to accept it. They only accepted the Pringles chips that the Korean seafarer offered as a snack.
Unlike what we see in movies, our modern heroes are walking with us. It could be your neighbor, a stranger, or it could be you. A little act of kindness surely goes a long way and will never be left unrewarded by the One above.
Kudos to this Pinoy hero and his co-workers! God bless you!
