Manchester United forward Radamel Falcao has saved the life of a dying fan.
Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has been lauded as a hero after he helped save the life of a young fan, according to reports in Colombia.
The United star was reportedly approached by a desperate mother three months ago, who has spent the last two years searching for a heart donor.
With three months’ notice, Falcao acted quickly to help John Uyaban, a boy with a rare blood type or urgently needed help.
The 17-year-old boy had reportedly spent the last two years searching for a heart donor, to no avail, before Falcao stepped in.
The Colombia forward managed to track down a new heart for Uyaban, who had his operation this week.
Uyaban is now apparently set to be released from hospital within the next 20 days as a result of the emergency operation.
“Falcao said immediately he’d set to the task of finding a heart,” she was quoted as saying.
“We don’t know how he did it, or who brought the heart, but he did it.
“We thank God that everything went well.”
I’m not a Manchester United fan, but I am a life fan of the spirit of love and kindness, I will cheer it where ever it can be seen!
