Police constable Tyrone Sammut went viral on Thursday after a video was shared showing him helping out a food courier who got caught in the St. Julian’s floods on Thursday.

However, Malta Daily has been informed that there is more to the story. Prior to the capturing of the viral video, constable Sammut reportedly saved the courier from drowning after he was caught between his motorcycle and the current in the Spinola area as a result of the heavy rainfall.

The constable told Malta Daily that he was in his squad car going towards the St. Julian’s police station when he saw the motorcycle toppling onto the courier due to the weather conditions. He immediately exited his car to help remove the motorcycle from on top of the drowning individual. After checking that he was well, he helped the individual carry his motorcycle onto the pavement.

Malta Daily gave a token of gratitude to the constable and the entire Malta Police Force for their acts of courage on a daily basis.
