A Filipino in Japan was given citation for rescuing a woman who was about to jump off a bridge, Unang Balita reported on Monday.
Leyte-born Emil Rebejo Vega was on his way home from work on board his motorcycle when he spotted the woman preparing to jump off the bridge.
According to him, he immediately went to the woman and held her hand while he asked for help from other motorists, who in turn called the police.
Because of what he did, Rebejo, who has been living in Japan for 16 years, was given a citation by the Asaka City police force. —KBK, GMA News
