Ð IN THE NICK OF TIME - Would You Do It?

It is a matter of life and death! Just like the saying "In the very nick of time" someone's life could be saved in just a matter of split seconds difference. This incident happened in Tigre, Argentina on Feb 10 2010 where the driver of a van was too impatient to wait at a level railway crossing took an illegal by-pass from the half-barrier to cross the road. What you are about to see in the video is that van somehow got stuck on the train tracks when a train on the left is fast approaching. There were two men on a motorbike stopping right behind the van. Now what would you do if you are the motorist or the pillion rider?



The 'superman' is 30 year old, Jose Luis Medrano who has developed an instant power and strength required to push the van inches away from being struck by the oncoming train and he barely makes it to safety. What a courageous man, full of compassion and selflessness to risk his own life for someone he does not even know. He is being hailed as a hero in Argentina and all over the world now after his courageous action was captured by surveillance camera. ~ Gracias.  

Moral of the Story: Do NOT take any short cut and be patient with the traffic rules.

~ooOoo~

On the very same recent news about train mishaps this was caught on tape showing a poor man stumbled onto the subway tracks just as a train was entering the station in Phoenix, Arizona. Out of selflessness these two Police officers acted swiftly to rescue the man from the tracks risking their own lives. The man could have been drunk or could suffer from sickness but the two Police officers have no time to be judgmental. Fulfilling their duties of saving people's life is their number one priority. Kudos to the police force of Phoenix.



Moral of the Story: Do NOT take subway if you are drunk or if you are too sick get assistance.

Thanks to Marc Wan for the inspiration.

Merryn said...

:( sad to say, I dun think I'm that selfless to do that. I always think what will happen to MY family when I'm gone.. :(

Bengbeng ~ different people react differently like the motorist can see him 'kan cheong' and looked on. Too much things going into his mind. He was negative and retreated very far away like expecting a crash or something. thanks.

Merryn ~ Not easy to practise selflessness especially on someone you dont even know and even then it takes a lot of courage and quick thinking. The police officer have said if he had thought about it, things would be different then. thanks.

I saw the second video on the news here in Sydney.

Wow, the first video is really scary! The van driver should be a bit patient and wait for the train to pass first. But really thanks to that motorist's passenger.

It's almost like us taking J-walk not wanting to wait for the "little green man" to say WALK.

Yeah, sometimes our reflex does things that is totally opposite of what our brain wud have told us to do, that's why they are called reflex. Sometimes in life, when we think too much, we can get nothing done...
