A volunteer firefighter, who did not even have the right safety gear to also protect himself saved a baby from the fire but felt guilty for not having saved the baby's older brother.
The fire broke out in Brgy. Manuyo Uno in Las Piñas.
The aunt of the baby, Alenie Laureta Gallardo, posted the photo of the firefighter and said that they are already thankful for saving his nephew and that he must not blame himself for having failed to save the sibling.
The aunt even recognized that he was a volunteer and that he had no safety gear.
The young volunteer firefighter was brought to the Las Piñas District Hospital and was treated for the wounds he sustained.
“Kuya, isa kang bayani. Huwag mo pong sisihin ang sarili mo. Nailigtas mo si Gab-Gab at isang malaking pasalamat na agad para sa iyo," noted Alenie in her post.
Kuya is among those whom the country needs today, especially now that it is being ravaged by Ulysses. The wrath of Typhoon Ulysses was unexpected. Although Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon were already bracing themselves for what Ulysses could bring, its onslaught became a nightmare for everyone. The Mayor of Marikina was among those praised by netizens for his hands-on approach in the rescue efforts.
The devastation of Typhoon Ulysses can be seen in various footage. Social media became a rescue hotline. One resident in QC sought the help of rescue teams after being stranded due to the typhoon.
