Hero Of the Day:13yr old Nigerian boy dies after trying to save a drowning girl

Lets meet our hero of the day,13 year old Ricky Osagie (pictured above, his dad right)
from Warrenstown died on Saturday June 21st following a brave attempt to try to
save a girl who had got into trouble swimming in a man-made pond at Waterville Hall residential complex in
Blanchardstown, Dublin on
Friday June 20th.

According to Irish Mirror, a friend of Ricky’s, a teenage girl, got into
the water and was almost drowning when Ricky and another female friend
jumped into the pond to try to save her. The other teen girl who jumped
in to help also now had difficulties in the pond, and it was up to Ricky
to save both girls. Which he did. Paramedics were called and all three
teens were taken to the hospital. The two girls survived, but Ricky died
the next day.

Ricky Osagie was a teenage soccer sensation whose dream was to
represent Ireland, his distraught father, Kelly Osagie told the Sunday
Irish Mirror. He said Ricky was a hero because he knew he was
risking his life when he went into the water as he
couldn’t swim.

“He was trying to help someone else.That’s what happened. My son died a
hero. He went in and then that was it. My son is gone but a girl is
alive because of him. He always smiled and was happy all the time. He
was such a fantastic footballer. We have trophies everywhere in the
house. Ricky was going to play for Ireland, that’s what he said he was
going to do. He had so many friends. He is a hero, a real hero. I want
the world to know what my son did. He was a man.”

He is really a hero! Such a sad story!
