Reel life hero became a real-life saviour when he helped a man hit by a speeding vehicle.
Malayalam actor Jayasurya stopped his car en route to Angamaly, where he had a shoot when he saw a large crowd gathered on the road, the English Mathrubhumi reported.
The vehicle sped off, without as much as stopping to help the victim.
“I found a crowd near Oberon Mall. I asked my driver to stop the vehicle as I suspected chances of an accident. When the man was bleeding, people quarrelled with each other without any concern for him. When I approached him, he was struggling with pain. A boy among the crowd helped me to take him to the hospital,” said Jayasuriya to the English Mathrubhumi.
The victim was Dhappa, a labourer from Bengal working in Kochi.
Fortunately, Dhappy was not seriously injured and will resume work soon, his friend Parasuraman told Mathrubhumi.
Jayasurya also told the publication that he didn’t think he did anything great, but only what was necessary. He said that some mistakes are beyond anyone’s control, but it’s essential to act on it.
“Our vehicle may hit a person, but we should not leave him on the road to die.If we find an accident victim, we should take him to hospital. Never waste your energy by arguing with others in such a crucial situation,” he stated.
The actor’s latest film is slated for release on November 17th. It is called Punyalan Private Limited, a sequel to the massive hit satirical comedy Punyalan Agarbattis, that revolves around Jayasurya’s characters incense business that makes the fragrant sticks from elephant dung!
