That is why you take of your own. Now his poor family is without him.

I respect the guy for trying, but doing it in such a stupid way could have killed the girl he was trying to save. What if noone else was around?

Still, respect for him for at least trying to help!

I fail to see the heriosm in this guy`s action.

1: you never ever dive headfirst into unknown water.

2: your first and foremost responsibilities as a parent lie with your child and your partner.

whois going to provide for his kid now? who`s gonna raise him? i love selfless acts, and i love hero`s but this? this iant it.

Is it only me that noticed they say he dove into the creek. If he had jumped he would not have broken his neck. His heart was in the right place but not his head.

So very sad. Hero doesn`t even begin to cover what this man was.

From what I understand, he jumped in and injured himself, and the girl was pulled from the river, so technically he didn`t actually save her. Nonetheless, his actions were selfless and those of a hero.

It`s in the story somewhere, but he also helped save a truck driver from a burning cab about a week earlier I believe. So he is twice a hero.

Good man. Gave his life to save a child.

He had a child and wife of his own. Too bad he can`t be there for them anymore. Tough call for him to make...truly a hero.
