I think this man who picked up a disabled elderly women, put her over is shoulder, and ran with her from the crashed plane, is a true hero even though he is downplaying his actions.

Quote:"It's not heroism, it's being human," Earle said. "I just happened to be the guy that was there. I just happened to be the guy sitting in that row. That's all."

Other people were there too, but they chose to run past these two women instead of helping.

Nice to see that there are still some people who are not so selfish to care about the welfare of another. Not so often seen these days.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Of course he wouldn't call himself a hero, but well done. Not all men have the strength to throw an old woman over their shoulder so he was definitely in the right place at the right time and did the right thing. A hero to the old woman and her family no doubt.

It also gives me hope should TSHTF that some people with this type of mindset may form a band/tribe for mutual survival and protection of others.

Thanks for this post it reminded me of this movie ......

and one of my all time favourite scenes that I never am fed up to watch:

No motive other than to help another in distress... that's a hero.
Well done.

True, but at least he tried and he did say later that she was very light.

I just listened to an interview with a Pilot , who in the 1990's
collided with another Plane on the runway in Italy

He jumped out of the plane through a hole in the cockpit and yelled
to passengers who had come out onto the wings ,,, JUMP

One Big Fat Skank Bitch , pushed people down on the wing
so she could jump first

her karma got her

about 15 people landed on her fat bag of shït ass as they jumped from the wing

breaking her back
both legs
both arms
her jaw

and she shït herself on top of all that .

She was such a Heroine , people just ran away as the Plane went up in smoke

people who hit her when they landed , saved themselves from
breaking their legs .

A Bronze Statue should be made of her for the Pigeons to shït on .

The fear of death or injury can cause some people to ramp up into that panic 'flight' response.
