Age that is no longer young does not prevent 92-year-old John Sher from doing useful things for others. At almost a century old, John is still able to work as a guard at a horse race. And it is in this place that he reaps all the hero stories. When being interviewed by a TV station thanks to his heroic actions, John told the media crew. When he was on duty at the racetrack at Santa Anita Park in the United States. At that time, the match had just started, but he heard someone shout that a horse had lost. John then ordered everyone present to step back. However, upon a closer look, he saw a little girl standing in the arena. At that time, without thinking and ignoring his safety, John immediately ran and hugged the girl. “I was then trampled by a horse that was so strong. As if the horse got soft prey for it to kick. I knew it would happen to me and maybe I could die there, but my little heart asked me to save that little girl from a horse attack so wild. He was little, while I was old. I have lived a long journey in life, while the girl is about to live her life ”. John said on Medical Daily when he was met on Wednesday (6/11/2013).
After the horse was successfully tamed, John was rushed to the hospital with severe injuries all over his body including a broken pelvis, while the girl he rescued, Roxy Key, was completely unharmed. Michael Key, Roxy’s father himself witnessed the unfortunate incident and he was so shocked that he couldn’t do anything about it. “Roxy woke up and at that time I was really panic until I was shaking. Roxy then told me that she was fine. Then I turned to the arena and saw the old man who saved my child lying covered with wounds on his body. He is truly a hero to my son, if only he didn’t help my little girl, maybe I would never meet my little girl again. ” Michael explained.
It took about 7 weeks for John to return to a better condition. The doctor who treated him admired John’s healing progress so fast. Doctors doubted that John would survive, because he was bleeding profusely and even had a very low blood pressure. For his heroic actions to the extent that the leadership in his place worked at Santa Anita Park, George Haines said “there is no doubt about it. John Shear is a hero. He used to say over and over again that he was really proud of his current job, “said George. John himself once revealed that what he did to save a girl from death was the most important thing in his nearly a century old.
This is a new picture that age never limits one’s social spirit to help others who are in distress. We just pray that John gets well soon and he can return to work with his job.
