When Joseph Gutierrez’ 5-year-old son slipped of an inflatable dolphin in to the depths of a swirling river, Gutierrez did what most parents would do.
He jumped in to save the boy, reports The Associated Press.
He also drowned.
The child was saved by two bystanders.
The boy may also grow up riddled with guilt, but certainly knowing what true love is.
