There’s way too much bad news in the world today…why not focus on the good instead? Here’s a recent story that will make you feel better about life. 🙂
Hero schoolchildren who saved man trying to jump off bridge over A10 in Waltham Cross set for national awards
Three young boys in Britain are being honored with national awards for saving a man’s life. As the article reports, “Devonte Cafferkey, 13, and Sammy Farah, 14, rushed to grab a man sitting with a rope around his neck on the edge of an A10 overpass in Waltham Cross on September 21 last year. Friend Shawn Young, who was 12 at the time, called for help.” The kids held onto the man, who no doubt weighed much more than them, preventing him from killing himself. Eventually several adults arrived and took over.
The boys are receiving Special Achievement awards at the Broxbourne Youth Awards, which celebrate achievements by young people.
I’m glad the kids are being recognized for their bravery and selflessness. We need more of this kind of compassion in the world! 🙂 Good work Devonte, Sammy, and Shawn!
