In Australia, Julian Shaw, a 14-year-old boy, risked his life to save Mark O’Dwyer. You can read the details here. I certainly applaud Mr. Shaw and his noble efforts.
But Mr. O’Dwyer has shown an attitude that is completely un-American (I realize he is Australian and, therefore, under no obligation to act American, but I’m making a point, so back off!). Note this part of the article:
“‘What an amazing young man,’ said Mr O’Dwyer, recovering at home with a back injury, three fractured ribs, a fractured shoulder, damaged knee and general bruising.”
In the course of saving his life, Mr. Shaw inflicted Mr. O’Dwyer with a back injury, three fractured ribs, a fractured shoulder, a damaged knee AND general bruising? And no mention of Mr. O’Dwyer suing Mr. Shaw, his family, his insurance company, his church and his high school?
