OFW security guard in Dubai honored for saving two workers from water tank


A Filipino security in Dubai has been honored for his bravery after rescuing two workers from an industrial water tank. 

Overseas Filipino worker (OFW) Richard Esteban was honored together with his fellow security officers Muhammed Zubair and Muhammed Iftikhar from Pakistan. 

According to reports, they rescued two men from the tank just in time for them to receive urgent medical treatment. The men were found in a semi-conscious state in an industrial water tank. 

“We helped the two people there because as a security [guard] we need to secure the lives of people, so we just did our best,” the Filipino said. 

The now-considered heroes called for medical assistance before Esteban and Iftikhar hopped the large water tank and saved them. 

“Because there [were] human beings in the tank, I felt that if I didn’t go inside they could die within minutes. I wore two masks and went in the tank and with Richard’s help I got them out,” Iftikhar added.
