As the low pressure area and other weather systems brought buckets of rain to many parts of the Philippines, several places suffered flashfloods and landslides which left thousands of people stranded away from their homes.
Many establishments and schools were also affected, with people needing to walk in waist-deep or even chest-deep waters just to get back home.
Many stories of heroism, hope, and love were shared on social media as the floods continued to affect many residents but there’s a touching love story that had gotten the attention of the people on social media.
In a post by netizen Clydie Summer, a guy could be seen helping a girl stay dry amid the flooding in what appears to be a school. There were armchairs around that the guy used to create a makeshift bridge for the girl to walk on.
When he ran out of armchairs, the chivalrous guy took the girl on a piggyback ride and brought her to the nearest dry spot which was not within the reach of Summer’s camera.
Touched upon witnessing the moment, Summer wrote,
Ito yong lovestory na sinubaybayan ng sambayanang Pilipino😂 Find a man that will never let you walk in the mud and cross the flood👏😍A for effort talaga si kuya mula sa pagpasan ng mga chairs para patungan ni ate tapos nong hindi na talaga kinaya ang lalim, nagpiggy back ride na lang sya😊😍 Salute kay ko ni ate oy wa gyod nahugawan ba😂👏 Longlive sa inyoha coups😍💖 #mayforeversabaha
Netizens praised the guy for doing his best to keep the girl dry while many felt envious that the girl had found such a chivalrous guy.
