Everton Soares Pereira, aged 35, saved a 16-year old girl from being raped by 2 armed men. Upon hearing the screams of the victim, he set about trying to rescue the girl, whilst another man ran to the local police station to call for help. Thankfully, the police arrived just in time to save Everton from potentially being shot.
Everton suffers from drug addiction and lives in the city streets of Porto Alegre, Brazil where he takes care of his dog and its 5 puppies. Following the incident, a veterinarian offered free vaccines and treatment for the dogs whilst a specialist substance-abuse clinic has offered him free treatment for his addictions.
Here’s hoping that Everton, a real life hero, receives all the further help that he needs.
