Shout out to all who’ve been around long enough to remember the “dived to shield his girlfriend” bullshitry we were exposed to a few years ago, before I got Canadianized.
Video below is one of few rare exceptions depicting what appears to be the real dive to save another fellow Earth inhabitant. The diver is a railway worker, who noticed that a drunk man was struggling to cross the tracks with his bicycle, and with train fast approaching, faced certain death.
The worker ran, and risking his own life, dived in front of the train to bump the drunk off the machine’s path. The drunk probably didn’t even realize his sorry ass was just saved.
