MANILA, Philippines – Ian de Leon became viral online after his act of kindness towards a stranger. Here’s the story…
A certain Kristine Madrigal Sarmiento posted on her Facebook account that her son received immediate help from actor Ian de Leon after being hit by a road accident.
De Leon didn’t know the child but still preferred to take him to the hospital. She also noted in her post that passersby didn’t even offered help, only de Leon did.
The hit and run incident was later reported on GMA News. They revealed that de Leon didn’t just helped the boy through sending him to the hospital but also helped in finding the motorist who hit the boy. The suspect was caught at Robinsons Place Las Pinas. The actor was also able to stay with the child until some of his family members arrived.
After some moments of shock, her mother Kristine Madrigal Sarmiento, didn’t recognized that it is actually Ian de Leon who helped her son.
According to Sarmiento, even if the man is not popular, he was still able to help her son. There was a lot of blood upon the incident but he had second thoughts into helping the boy. It’s truly an act of kindness.
Meanwhile, the 10-year-old boy is currently under observation in the hospital after a major surgery. The motorist who hit the boy was also forgiven and was not filed a case.
Sarmiento also would like to meet the kind actor personally to thank him for his kindness all throughout the incident.
