A series of photos showing a college professor falling into a creek while delivering learning modules to children has been making the rounds online.
According to The Philippine Star, the professor is Moises Palomo, a 32-year-old social sciences teacher based in Tandag City, Surigao del Sur.
He fell into a creek on his way to deliver learning modules to children, he confirmed that no modules were damaged.
“Literal na drop sa tulay. Untana answeran ni nila kay kulang nlang makipagbugno ko sa gahiluno na buaya ug tangkig para lang mahatod sa tugbongan,” Palomo said.
Palomo was a semi-finalist in It’s Showtime’s Miss Q&A in 2019. She gracefully stood up and held the modules above his head and continued her good deeds.
“After mahulog parang nagtawanan yung kasama ko kasi parang sanay sila na makita ako na masayahin, nagpapatawa, kaya pinicture-an ako. Tapos ayun sinubukan ko tumawid sa ilog sa ilog kasi walang available na bangka nung time na yun may part din kasi sa ilog na mababaw lang. Unfortunately, di ako nakatawid,” he added.
Palomo and his friends produced the modules themselves as part of their ‘Distance Learning Amidst Covid-19’ initiative to children who have yet to attend school.
His post has gone viral, reaching millions of netizens.
“Actually nagulat ako kasi una pinost ko kasi natawa ako sa reaksyon tapos madaming nagreact, tumawa, naawa. Na-schock ako kasi feeling ko ang daming naka-relate… Medyo kinabahan baka kasi sabihin na pinabyaan ng DepEd,” Palomo further added.
