The rescuers and the boys were taken to hospital where they were treated for hypothermia, with the children thanking the men over and over again as they shivered, frightened and scared.
One of the inmates has said., “You see three helpless kids in a river, you help. That’s what you do. Just cause we’re incarcerated, doesn’t mean we’re bad people. We made some bad choices in our lives, but we’re still, we’re just like everybody else. We’re just paying our debt for what we did wrong.”
We all make mistakes in our live’s; we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t and I’m a great believer that you shouldn’t judge people by their past as they don’t live there anymore. Without the actions of these three men those children may not be alive today to tell their tale.
