The South African Firefighter is getting a lot of attention from the ladies, but there is one comment that is giving us all the feels… and it’s from his mom!
Western Cape, South Africa (07 March 2021) – Tortoises are some of the hardest hit animals in wildfires as they are generally quite slow and battle to get away from the blaze. In some cases, these little creatures seem to miraculously survive, but in others, a little help from humans is needed. And in this case, one firefighter in particular.
The Helderberg Wildlife Rescue centre recently posted about Asive Bizwaphi, who managed to save a tortoise from a raging wildfire. The centre also requested for everyone to report any visible smoke or any small fire to your nearest fire department.
“One of the firefighters that saved this stunning tortoise. From the bottom of our and the whole entire community, we want to thank every single person that was involved with fighting the horrible wildfire that caused devastating damage. Not all heroes wear capes.”
Bizwaphi is a trained athlete and currently works at the Stellenbosch Fire and Rescue, and even though the photo is gaining loads of attention from the ladies who are talking about his “good looks”, there is one woman whose comment has given us all the feels!
Sivuyisiwe Nontluva Bizwapi wrote, “Oh my son, you make me proud.”
And we couldn’t agree more! Thank you, good sir for all the work you do. You make all of us so incredibly proud!
