This is the heroic moment beachgoers formed a human chain to save a tourist drowning in the sea in the Philippines.

The man in his mid-20s was playing in the waist-deep water when he was knocked over by the powerful waves on the Binmaley beach in Pangasinan province as holidaymakers were celebrating the New Year on January 1.

Onlookers heard his cries for help and immediately banded together to reach the drowning man, who was struggling to stay afloat because of powerful tides.

Wow, what a powerful example of spontaneous cooperation.

Safe a life; save the world.

No Gooferment; no politicians and bureaucrats, just good people reacting quickly.
