GLHS Sophomore, Ryan Manbevers, performed a courageous act in saving the life of a thirteen year old boy on May 8, 2012.
Manbeverss, working on a normal Thursday at the Wendy’s in downtown Gahanna, selflessly saved a boy, Brandon Cain, who could not swim. The rushing water of the creek in downtown Gahanna pulled Cain down the creek. Without even thinking, Manbevers sprung into action.
“A lady ran into my work and asked my manager to call the police. I asked where the boy was and ran and saved him” Manbeverss said.
He put himself in danger to save the life of a little boy that he barely knew. Although most wouldn’t perform such a courageous act, Manbevers felt it was the right thing to do. The boy thirtenne year old boy could have lost his life if Manbevers would not have saved him.
“He was just at the right place at the right time. I was very proud of him” Manbevers girlfriend, Kelsey Ferguson said.
Ferguson found out about Manbevers courageous act on the day of the accident. This good news has not just spread around Gahanna, but around the entire city of Columbus.
“Although I don’t know Ryan, his actions were truly amazing. I wish everyone could be as selfless as him!” junior Haley Bockrath said.
Manbevers actions are appreciated by not only Cain’s family, but also the entire community of Gahanna.
