People are supposed to reveal their actual character in times of peril and turmoil, as this is when the phrase “true nature” is most commonly used. It is also that we can identify the true heroes.
The protagonist of this tale, a minor child of 13 years old who regrettably passed away, illustrates what it takes to be a genuine hero.
In his honour, we will relate the details of his terrible experience.
In 2011, the state of Queensland in Australia was severely impacted by a tidal wave responsible for the deaths of many individuals.
The waves engulfed the van that Donna Rice and her two kids, Jordan and Blake, were travelling in, trapping the entire family within.
They observed an increasing number of people drowning all around them as the water level continued to rise.
A tidal surge engulfed and carried away a car.
When the tragedy occurred, Donna and her sons were reportedly on their way home from the store where they had purchased their school clothes.
Images show the excessive water level carrying away anything in its path, including automobiles, garbage cans, street signs, and more.
When the car became stalled at a traffic signal, they were unable to retake control. They made many attempts to contact emergency personnel.
Climbed up to the top of the automobile.
Because more than half of the vehicle was already submerged in water, Donna and her two kids, Jordan and Blake, attempted to flee the vehicle via the roof so that they would not drown.
At long last, a person armed with rope made an attempt to save the mother and her two boys.
However, it was only a matter of time until the raging waves took the truck away from them for good.
There was just no room for error.
At that very moment, Jordan, who could not swim and was deathly afraid of the water, yelled out to the person attempting to save them both, “Save my brother first.”
The boy’s father, John Tyson, told the Chronicle, “I can only imagine what was going on inside to give up his life to rescue his brother, even though he was afraid of water.” “I can only picture what was going on inside to give up his life to save his brother,” “He is our little hero,” said his mother.
Both the mother and the son were taken by the water.
Jordan, who was 13, refused to let anyone assist him first. He wished for the safety of his younger brother, who was 10 years old.
Unfortunately, just as the people who came to help pulled his little brother out of the car, Jordan and his mother were swept away by the waves and drowned.
Neither one of them made it.
Everyone wanted to convey their deepest sympathies to the youngster and his mother.
Jordan’s name will live on in history books as that of a genuine hero.
“Just because you’re tough doesn’t mean you have to be calm and crazy.
Sometimes, toughness requires nothing more than speaking a few things firmly yet softly, such as when a boy who couldn’t swim said them to him when he was drowning.
“When the stakes are highest, everybody may show some toughness,” the father subsequently told the reporters.
Many years later, the young man’s father earned a medal for courage on behalf of his son.
Jordan, you are a hero. You will not be forgotten under any circumstances.
