Heartwarming expat news is coming out of Daejeon, at the moment, as local news reports are indicating that a pair of native English teachers saved a drowning Korean woman. The married foreign couple were taking a walk near the Expo Bridge in Mannyeong-dong of Daejeon's Seo-gu district, when they heard a sound coming from the water. After seeing the woman floundering in the water, the foreign husband immediately responded by diving in and brought her to the shore, where the wife also tended to her until emergency responders arrived on the scene.
The humble couple declined wanting to reveal their names or images to the public, and merely stated, “We just did what we had to do.”
Expats from that region seem to be good swimmers and life-savers, as some of you may recall in 2009, the foreign teacher from America who saved 2 drowning college kids in the ocean near Mokpo. The Missouri native was experienced with CPR and was able to resuscitate one of the Koreans and aided him until medical help arrived.
