Most people don’t care about other people in the world, but other people will go to tremendous measures to make sure they are secure. This young man proves that being a superhero need not be enormous even though he is just 11 years old. All of this happened after he put his life in danger to help a wounded dog.
Brazilian citizen Jean Fernandes was walking down the street when he saw a puppy crying in the middle of the street. The helpless animal was struck by a car, and the driver fled, leaving him in agony, according to the local news channel Globo Rural.
Fortunately, the 11-year-old hero was unable to just observe the dog’s suffering. He raced into the street, halted traffic, and then picked up the dog and carried him to safety because he knew he had to act.
Fortunately, the brave act was recognized, as a resident snapped a photo of the heartwarming scene. Photographer Rafael Martins captured the event on camera and released a few images online. The Facebook post gained a lot of attention when it received several compliments on the boy’s wonderful deed. One mother noted, “This young infant is already larger than many men,” which perfectly captured the situation.
Jean’s mother said that she was not surprised by her son’s gesture of kindness since he has always had a soft spot for animals when she was questioned about it. She also mentioned how keen her child is to help out orphaned creatures. The dog Jean saved, named Mel (honey in English), was sent to a nearby shelter where he got treatment for his wounds and is expected to make a full recovery soon.
