There’s a man! Stop the engine! Get closer. Jump! Mister. Hold on tight. Is it true you swam all night? Weren’t you afraid of sharks? Were you trying
to commit suicide? – Why did you do it?
– Were you aware of the danger? – What’s your name?
– Do you know you could’ve died? Where do you live? In order to light a candle
on his parents’ grave, a scavenger attempted to swim
from Cebu to Carmen, Bohol. The coast guard saved
Ceferino Angco, who was found floating at sea
in Talisay City, Southern Cebu. According to the coast guard
team leader, they spotted Angco clinging on
to a styrofoam board. He was freezing and weak
after swimming for nine hours. Angco did not have
money for his fare, but he did not want
to commit a crime to get home for
All Saints’ Day. How does it feel that
you can finally go home? I’m happy. I can finally visit
my parents’ grave. Thank you to the people
who saved me. Thank you. One decision rekindled
my dashed hopes and belief in myself
and mankind: The decision to come home
to my family no matter what. Selda. Frino. I’m sorry, Selda.
I couldn’t come home. I couldn’t get back in time. You’re okay, Frino. You’re here now. I couldn’t… I couldn’t come home
in time for Papa. He kept asking for you. He was calling out your name
before he died. He told us to find you
and bring you home. That was his dying wish. I couldn’t keep
my promises to them. I couldn’t keep my promises
to our family. Frino, you came home. You kept the promise
that matters most. You came home
so we could be together. Frino, you’re home. You kept your promise to Papa. Our family is complete again. Frino! Let’s eat. Okay.
