Giap Van Tuyen.

At that moment, Tuyen, driving the car BKS 18C-051.03 passing by, did not hesitate to rush into the water to save her. After diving, he found the victim and brought her ashore.

However, due to the fast flowing water, both of them were swept away to the middle of the river and disappeared. After hours of searching, at about 3:35pm on the same day, the bodies of Tuyen and the woman were found.

Tuyen's courageous act and willingness to help the woman in distress have impressed many people.

The scene of the incident.

Than Trung Kien, Secretary of the provincial Youth Union, said: “This is an act that deserves praise and recognition for the courage and the spirit of living responsibly to the society because in fact not many people dare to defy dangers to jump into the water to save other people like Tuyen. We proposed and got approval of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee to posthumously award the "Brave Youth" badge to Giap Van Tuyen".

Painful but proud

Tuyen's house is located in a small alley along provincial road 295. Right from the morning of September 21, many friends, relatives and colleagues were present here to prepare for his funeral. White wreaths and fragrant incense were moved to commemorate the brave young man. In the afternoon of the same day, many people and family members took Tuyen to his final resting place at his hometown cemetery.

According to the plan, on September 22, under the authorization of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee, the Bac Giang province’s Youth Union will coordinate with relevant units to hand over the "Brave Youth" badge to Giap Van Tuyen’s family representative.

Tuyen's death at his young age left a huge void for his family and relatives, especially when about a month earlier, his father also suddenly died while working at a construction site in the locality.

Tuyen is the youngest son in a farming family and he has two older brothers. Tuyen was not married yet so he lived with his mother. After finishing the secondary education, Tuyen quit school, then learned to drive a car and applied for a job at a nearby business to support his family.

Knowing Tuyen’s death, his mother fainted many times. Just over a month, the woman had to witness the passing away of her two most loved ones.

Giap Thanh Xuan, an older brother of Tuyen, said: “Our family was in great pain when we heard that our youngest brother died. But I am also very proud, because he did the right things that my father, a veteran, had taught us”.
