Have you ever had one of those days that start out like any other day but then life throws you a curve ball that causes you to drop what you're doing and take charge of a situation you would have never expected? This recently happened to a member of our Sprint Trinidad team and their reaction to a scene they saw unfolding helped save a life. How many people can say that? 

 

When Auvon noticed a teenage man in a dangerous situation he acted quickly and leapt into action to help out as best he could. The young man had climbed on top of the protective fencing that covered a walk way over a busy road. The man had been contemplating jumping until Auvon decided to get up on top of the fencing and sit next to him to join him for a chat. This was a total stranger to Auvon but his response in simply joining and talking to the the young man resulted in them both coming safely down and having the teenager met with the professional help he needed.

 

We want to give a very big THANK YOU to Auvon for recognizing the severity of the situation and doing what he could be a hero for the young man in need.
