Real-life heroes exist and aren’t just found in movies or comic books; they frequently perform extraordinary deeds at a tremendous personal sacrifice.
The life of a crossing guard in Kansas City was sacrificed last Tuesday to save young children from potential death.
At Christ the King Parish School, where he had served as a crossing guard for five years, Bob Nill, 88, was well-liked by the youngsters, who called him “Mr. Bob. “.
Several witnesses claim a dark car passed through Nill’s crossing at eight. This Tuesday.
Nill risked his life to protect two children.
According to school principal Cathy Fithian to KMBC 9, “He stopped [two kids], and they listened, thank God.”.
According to witnesses, Nill reportedly shoved the kids out of the way as the car passed by. He was unfortunately struck. His nephew Randy claimed that the heroic deed was not out of character for him.
“What my Uncle Bob did for merely moving small children across the street appeared perhaps minor to some people, but it was a vital job for him, and now we realise how essential it was,” he explained. He could’ve prevented some deaths. “.
Nill served in the Coast Guard and worked in banking before retiring. After leaving his full-time job, he continued doing his community as a crossing guard.
Randy said, “I believe he believed he could help children while making himself feel good about what he was doing.
Christ, the King Parish School, made a statement on their Facebook page on Tuesday.
“We wanted to give you an update on Mr. Nill, our crossing guard. We are sorry to inform you of his passing. Please keep Mr. Nill and his family in your prayers, as well as the kids, parents, and teachers who were there today and saw the accident. “.
