Actor Ian de Leon saved a 10-year-old boy's life after he was hit by a motorcycle in Manila, Philippines recently.
The boy’s mother, Kristine Madrigal Sarmiento posted on Facebook to express her gratitude towards the actor for saving her son’s life.
She wrote: “Does anyone know how to get in touch with Ian de Leon, the actor and son of Nora Aunor and Christopher de Leon? I would like to personally thank him for rushing my son Ethan to the emergency room after he was hit by a speeding motorcycle. He was the only one who came to the rescue of a total stranger while all the other people just passed by and looked at my bloody 10-year-old son, who was alone when the incident happened. Such an act of kindness should be emulated by everyone. Not too many good Samaritans around anymore Please help me get in touch with him.”
In the comment section of one of his Instagram posts, de Leon replied to one of those who praised him for his heroic deed.
He wrote: “Nagkataon lng po siguro na nandun po ako nung nangyari ang accidente, kahit sino naman po ang nasa lugar ko, gagawin rin po ang na gawa ko.. God bless po..”
[It was just a coincidence that I was there when the accident happened. Anyone would do what I did if they were in my place. God bless.]
