Man Saves Drowning Family, Who in Turn Lets Him Drown

Posted on July 18, 2012

It is very rare for one to risk his own life to save strangers who need help. When one does, however, he or she is called a hero, and is given such praise publicly, even mentioned in the news headlines the next day.

Unfortunately for JinJie Deng, he did not get the treatment he deserved.

After saving a family of three from drowning in Loudi City Sunshuihe Park, China, Deng was left behind to drown.

The 27-year-old hero ran out of energy after rescuing the family. Succumbing to exhaustion from his rescue efforts, Deng was unable to handle the river’s strong current. He then drowned while the family he just rescued left the scene.

According to one witness at the scene, when a person from the crowd tried to stop the family of three from leaving, the woman said, “None of my damn business,” and drove away.

“What makes people bitterly disappointed is that, just as Deng Jinjie was in danger, and whether he was alive or dead was unknown, not only did the family of three that he rescued not actively try to help, they also didn’t stick around to see what would happen, instead indifferently choosing to leave,” the witness added.

they have been in a survival mode, not thinking clearly, the stress of almost drowning, maybe they couldnt have saved anyone at that precise moment, could only flee, but the drowned hero was a courageous being and he did what had to be done and if he had chosen not to, then he might be where those who drove away are now, haunted and guilt ridden for the rest of their lives.
