It is often very easy to write and comment on serious events that you read or watch on TV.
What we like most is when the heroes of the day are not what we see on TV but ordinary people. Devonte Cafferkey, Sammy Farah, and Shawn Young are three of them.
Adolescents are generally focused and closed to their world and do not look at what is happening around them. Thankfully this was not the case for the boys.
One day they shot to be in the right place at the right time and even doing the right thing. They were returning from school when they saw a 21-year-old sitting on the edge of an overpass with a rope around his neck.
Unfortunately, the man was thinking of killing himself but his guardian angels would not let him. The boys were invited by Steve Harvey to his show where they explained everything.
“We saw him on the other side of the bridge and then he had a rope around his neck. And then me and Sammy, we grabbed him and pulled him back, ”Shawn explained to Steve Harvey.
They even slept all the time for him to leave the edge. Steve asked Sammy: “Were you worried about saying the wrong thing?”
“Yeah, I was worried,” Sammy replied. “I was crying. I don’t see anyone dying. We told him that you have a family. Don’t do this, you are young. ”
Despite saying these words the man was determined to jump off the bridge and this was the moment when the boys held him tightly physically so that he would not fall.
The man was heavier than them and almost fell. Shawn called the police when Devonte and Sammy were barely holding him.
All three boys were recognized for their extraordinary courage and quick thinking. All three received certificates from the Royal Human Society, signed by none other than Queen Elizabeth of England.
“They were coming from school and loitering around, Shawn was telling them to hurry up. If they had been messing around a bit longer, who knows what they would have come and met instead? I feel like they were meant to be there to help him. ” mama of Shawn says.
We thank the boys very much for the action taken and wish them to serve as an example to others.
