Antonio Diaz Chacon made news headlines this week when he chased down a kidnapper and rescued the girl he had kidnapped. Today Chacon is in the news once again as his good deed is being rewarded by dozens of strangers who didn’t even know him.
According to officials Chacon has received hundreds of emails, phone calls, and letters in the mail asking if they can give him gift cards, cash, and other donations. So many people were so surprised by his brave effort to save the 6 year old girl that they are trying to reach out and reward him for his good deed. Chacon insists that he was simply in the right place at the right time and that he is not really a hero; thousands of parents in the area disagree and claim he is in fact a hero for his actions.
The fact that so many people are willing to reach out and reward Chacon for his actions are showing people that there are still plenty of good people out there. At this time Chacon has not said if he is accepting or even wanting any of the rewards, he has simply said that he was just doing the right thing by chasing down the kidnapper and rescuing the young girl. It is not every day that the general public offers a reward like this to someone so it is quite clear that there are still plenty of good people in the world that are willing to reward someone for their good deeds.
