Now THIS is what the Hero tag is for. Not for the majority of the uses around here, this man is a hero & if it were a just world his name would be as well known as the 'heroes' who do nothing more than hit/chase/carry/shoot some sort of ball around a playing field.

/thanks Subby, not sure how you knew about the dust in my house but thanks anyway
//glad Mr. Winton is still with us as well. Long may he live, he deserves at least a year for each child rescued.

Icetech3: ok..

A: im a 42 year old crybaby it seems...

and B: My life means nothing now... wasted it :(

Don't be daft. You're 42. I'm 45. I restarted my life a couple of years ago (when I was your age), went back and became a police officer. You're never to old to do the things you want to do with your life.

While what he did was definitely commendable I was underwhelmed by the wimp video and had to look it up on Wiki after it popped up on my Facebook.

If you want a real tearjerker story from Wimp, try this video on for size: WWII widow finally finds out what happened to her missing husband. (pops)

Here's about a 10 min segment on his story/life at YouTube. Lots of other clips off to the right too.

/watching these beats the hell of the Lost rerun that the rest of the family is engrossed in....

Also, Subby wasn't kidding about the dust. I teared up when all those people stood up, and more when I read the Wikipedia article. Yikes.

That vid needs some more build up/info.

For instance, how did he save the children? That would be interesting to know.
