Good People Doing Good Things — Saving Lives

Posted on April 28, 2021 by jilldennison 

Mayur Shelke is a superhero.  Nope, not Batman nor Superman nor even Pikachu, but a real flesh & blood hero.  Mayur is a railway worker in India, and on April 17th, he was working at Vangani station about 60 miles out of Mumbai.  Meanwhile, a partially blind mother and her 6-year-old son were walking next to the tracks.
Suddenly, somehow the child broke loose from his mother and tumbled over the edge of the platform and into the path of an oncoming train … a train that would never have been able to stop in time to keep from running over the child.  Mayur Shelke saw the boy fall and jumped into action, seemingly without a second thought …
“I ran towards the child but also thought that I might be in danger too. Still, I thought I should save him. The woman was visually impaired. She could do nothing. The child who is someone’s precious child, too.  My child is the apple of my eye, so must that boy in peril have been to his parents. I just felt something stir within me and I rushed without thinking twice.”
The entire remarkable incident might have gone unremarked—except that the whole thing was caught on CCTV cameras. Shelke says he hadn’t even mentioned it at home fearing he’d be scolded for putting himself in harm’s way. In a matter of days, the viral video took the Internet by storm.

The railway held a small ceremony to honour Mr. Shelke for his bravery, and they also presented him with ₹50,000 (about $660 USD).  And you might think that this is the end of this story, yes?  No, it isn’t.  When Mr. Shelke received the reward, he gave half of it to the family of the little boy whose life he had saved …
“I’ll give half of the amount, given to me as token of appreciation, for that child’s welfare & education. I came to know that his family isn’t financially strong. So I decided this.”
Damn … I want to shake this man’s hand!  This, my friends, is a hero … no, not the comic book kind, not the sort you might see in movies, but a real life hero.  Thank you, Mayur Shelke, for saving a young child’s life.


One week ago today, Edward Bomba was flagging traffic as the town crews patched the asphalt street in Seymour, Connecticut, when all of a sudden he dropped to the ground, convulsing, in the throes of, it was later determined, ventricular fibrillation.

It just so happened that Robert Dillon, a USPS employee, was on the street delivering the mail … he had finished up, then realized he had forgotten to deliver one package, and it was that which put him within feet of Mr. Bomba as he convulsed on the ground.  Mr. Dillon immediately began CPR, keeping the blood flowing until paramedics arrived and took over, transporting Mr. Bomba to the hospital.

Mr. Bomba is recovering, and according to his wife …
“He’s home and except for being tired, he’s fine.”
Now, granted Mr. Dillon didn’t throw himself in front of a moving train, but he still saved a life by being in the right place at the right time, and most importantly, knowing CPR, knowing what to do.  How many of us would?  I certainly wouldn’t.  My hat is off to Mr. Robert Dillon, another hero of the day!


Now, this ‘good people’ post is about saving lives, but I didn’t necessarily say that it was about saving human lives, did I?  Dogs are people too, and I think your heart will melt a little when you see this video of one dog, Jessie, rescuing her dog friend, a 15-year-old Toy Pom named Chucky, from their family’s pool in Johannesburg …

All that time, and Jessie never gave up!  What a hero!


See, my friends … heroes come in all shapes ‘n sizes, all species.
