Following the powerful 6.0 magnitude earthquake yesterday morning (June 5), many climbers were trapped on the mountain and guides were crucial in bringing back the injured, the weak and the deceased through treacherous conditions. A guide named Ridwan was seen strapping an injured Singaporean boy on his back and carrying him to safety.
A photo of a guide named Ridwan hunched over with an injured climber strapped over his back has earned admiration, praise and awe from social media users who hailed him as an unsung hero. The photo of mountain guide Ridwan, posted on Sabah Park’s Facebook page, has garnered over 9,000 Likes and 890 shares after three hours.
Thank you Ridwan on behalf of all Singaporeans. We salute you for your rescue efforts, without your selfless effort, the rescue wouldn’t have been possible
