Heroic Male Model Strips To Save Drowning Dog

People Pets, Andrea DeSimone

Sue Drummond and her Maltese-Shih Tzu mix Bibi set off for a walk by the water in Melbourne, Australia, she had no idea that it could be Bibi’s last. But with furious winds estimated at 60 mph, Bibi was suddenly blown right off the pier and into the rough waters below.

“I thought he was going to sink and then maybe I wouldn’t be able to find him,” Drummond told Australia’s Courier Mail. “But I didn’t really want to hop in the water either because I wasn’t quite sure if I could make it to shore with a struggling dog.” Drummond watched as Bibi helplessly tried to doggy paddle back to the pier.

Then out of nowhere, a bystander named Raden Soemawinata stripped down to his underwear and shirt and jumped in to save the pup. Soemawinata, 20, was on the pier for a family ceremony to scatter his grandmother’s ashes when he saw the dog struggling and plunged in after him.

Though he’s being hailed as a hero, Soemawinata says saving the dog wasn’t especially brave. “It was pretty cold and windy but it wasn’t such a hard decision to jump in,” he told Australia’s Daily Telegraph “It wasn’t such a great feat. I’m a part-time model, so getting into my jocks isn’t so different to what I do for work.”

    “It wasn’t such a great feat. I’m a part-time model, so getting into my jocks isn’t so different to what I do for work.” I went from crying my eyes out, to laughing my ass off. That seals the deal, I would definitely buy that fellow a drink.

    From sad occasion, to happy circumstance…this is why life is so awesome, some times.
