Man Jumps Off Pier to Save Drowning Dog

Now Trending | December 7th 2011

A real story that happened in Brighton Pier,Victoria, Australia:

Sue Drummond was walking her Shih Tzu Maltese, Bibi, on a very windy day, when Bibi suddenly fell into the water. Luckily, young chef and part-time model Raden Soemawinata happened to cross by at the same time. In an instant, Raden undressed and jumped to the cold water, putting his own life at risk to save little Bibi. The rescue effort was documented by a Herald Sun photographer who was at the scene, making Raden something of a cult hero.

Raden was awarded the Compassionate Citizen Award by Animals Australia for his “selflessness and bravery”.
