36-year-old Joe Blankson, a contractor who supplies diesel,
single-handedly rescued 13 people when a boat capsized along the
Abonnema-Bakana waterways in Degema, Rivers state, on Saturday, July 28,
2018.

The boat was conveying 25 passengers from Abonnema wharf to Bakana
before the accident happened around Iborama. Fishermen around the
area rescued some people while Blankson succeeded in rescuing 13 people
all on his own. As the father-of-two attempted to rescue a 14th
person, he died in the river and his body was retrieved a day later.
