Louisiana Man Rescues 5 Year Old From Alligator Plagued Water
There is a saying that all heroes don't wear capes, and with people like Daniel Duplantier, do we really need a Superman? This gentleman was out over the weekend watching Alligators in a canal in Westwego, Louisiana, and overheard cries and calls for help. Without a second thought, Mr. Duplantier went into action and was able to rescue a young boy from what was a haven for Alligators.
According to the Westwego Fire Departments Facebook page, Duplantier successfully pulled the 5- year old boy out of the water and the rescue crews were able to bring the young boy to safety out of the canal.
This is a tricky time of the year and in general n Louisiana and it is not a shock to see Alligators in the middle of the road depending on the weather conditions. This could have turned very bad depending on the outcome and thankfully Daniel was there to literally save the day. This is my first time hearing of the small town of Westwego, but I am sure that after today more people will become familiar with the city and Daniel Duplantier.
Keep a close eye on your kids and also animals as well during this time of the year. Kudos to Daniel and the Westwego Fire Department for jumping into action and turning what could have been bad into something good.
