Former professional wrestler Dwayne Johnson alias The Rock has acknowledged Kenyan pilots who rescued a truck driver from flood water.
The Rock shared a video online appreciating the pilots for the act of courage they displayed. He said that the pilots' actions inspired him. Also, the renowned actor added that the pilots deserve to receive flowers while alive.
"With my little training and research, I understand how difficult it must have been, I want to send you guys so much love, and I appreciate you," he said.
Taru Carr-Hartley, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust pilot, was captured in the viral video helping the truck driver into the helicopter. Sheldrick Wildlife Trust initiated the rescue operation after the Galana operations manager reported that the Tanker was being submerged by flood water. The track was travelling from the Galana-Kulalu causeway when the crisis occurred.
The man frantically sought help by clinging to the top of the tanker from 10 am. The Trust rescued him at 4 pm with onlookers watching in disbelief, unable to help.
“It was only a matter of time before the river engulfed the entire vehicle. Onlookers watched helplessly from the shore, horrified but unable to intervene, as the current made any sort of crossing impossible,” the trust said.
I couldn't agree more. There are white and brown people who chose to remain in Kenya after independence inspite of the risks and the dire predictions. These people live and work hard and quietly without much visibility. Many black Kenyans aren't aware of their existence. But these non black Kenyans happen to love this country deeply and sincerely, perhaps even more than the black Kenyans. They do not involve in politics and corruption. They are generous to a fault and give generously to the charities. I hail and laud them and wish more of our people would be just a little bit like them. Thank you so much.
Those same white people live like kings on grabbed land .It is not that Africans refused to help they were not in a position to.Apart from mpigs who fly around in choppers to show off how many regular folk have choppers at their disposal who could have helped this man.Tenda wema enda zako stop hating on your own kind while elevating white folk .Poverty is NOT a choice.
African watch as one is dying .Who knows if they are kenya citizens? Very bad written story.
