This Man Was Scattering His Grandma’s Ashes When He Spotted A Life In Danger And Sprang Into Action

It was savage weather for such a solemn occasion in the late Australian winter of 2009. The family group was gathered at the Melbourne waterfront to pay their last respects to an elderly clan member. All of a sudden, one of their number was alerted to something dreadfully wrong. Quickly realizing that a life was in real danger, the guy halted proceedings and – literally – leapt into action. He paid no mind to the fact that in doing so he was seriously jeopardizing his own safety.

Australian Raden Soemawinata is a part-time model, sometime chef and all-time hero. He now lives in Norway, but back in August 2009 the 28-year-old was in his native country and in mourning. He and his family had recently lost his grandmother. After his granny’s passing, Soemawinata’s family made a plan to come together in order to scatter the old girl’s ashes.
