Share The Joy

Calgary Sun
"Little Things"
by Paul Morris

Back when Alberta, Canada, was suffering from dangerous flooding, firefighter Shawn Wiebe was doing everything in his power to save as many lives as possible.

People were stuck in their homes and their cars as the frigid water continued to rise - - and the situation quickly got a lot worse than anyone initially expected.

But when he came across an older woman in need of help, instead of leading her through the cold water, Wiebe realized it would be a lot more efficient just to pick up the stranded grandmother and carry her to higher ground.

The woman seemed tentative at first, worried that he wasn’t strong enough, but if you take a look at Wiebe, something tells us that he’d probably be able to carry a small woman a hundred feet or so!

While Wiebe was carrying her out, she suddenly let out a laugh along with the hilarious sentence, “Oh! I haven’t been carried like this since my wedding night!”

Wiebe burst into laughter. After such a tough day, it must have been incredibly nice just to laugh for a moment.

And thankfully, it was right then that Calgary Sun photographer Lyle Aspinall snapped a photo that went viral nearly instantly! No wonder - - look at that smile!

Shawn Wiebe might be famous on the internet, but he never let that fame go to his head - - he remains humble, has stayed on the job and continues to work hard.
