Filipinos are highly preferred by foreign employers for being known to be of good character, being hard working, industrious and diligent. This time, another Filipino proved that these qualities are innate characteristics of being a Filipino anywhere in the world.
Recently, typhoon “Hato” has hit Macau and Hong Kong where a lot of houses and properties were damaged brought by strong winds and heavy rains in its maximum category 10.
A TV news report has shown a ‘heroic’ deed from a Filipino who saved two Chinese nationals trapped in the middle of a flood with wooden debris floating in turbulent waters.
YouScoop: Isang Pilipino ang nagligtas ng dalawang Chinese sa kasagsagan ng Typhoon Hato sa Barra, Macau. Ayon kay YouScooper Jhunnafe Mijares, asawa ng nagligtas na si Loreto Mijares, pauwi na sana ang dalawang Chinese nang abutan nang pagtaas ng baha sa daan. Nang makita ito, agad aniyang pumunta sa ibabaw ng isang sasakyan at kumuha ng salbadida si Loreto upang iligtas ang dalawa. Tumulong din ang mga residenteng Chinese na naghagis ng taling ginamit ni Loreto sa paghila sa dalawa papunta sa ibabaw ng sasakyan.

According to the report, Loreto, the husband of a certain Jhunnafe Mijares risked his life to save a Chinese who has been submerged in water struggling against water up to neck high.
Jhunnafe was able to film the incident as Loreto went on top of a stranded car and got the Chinese using a life buoy.
Chinese residents from the third floor of a nearby building helped Loreto by throwing some ropes which he later on used to remove the second Chinese citizen out of danger.
Kudos to this brave Filipino who risked his life just to be able to help others in times of need!
