While the world is filled with negative news, here’s one feel-good story that will remind you that there are still good people out there.
Sixteen-year-old Corion Evans didn’t think twice when he heard shouts for help from a car that drove off of a boat launch and into the Pascagoula River in Moss Point, Mississippi.
Evans took off his shirt and shoes, set aside his cellphone, and jumped in to rescue the three girls in the car.
The incident happened Sunday at around 2:30 a.m., when the car, which had three teenage girls inside, drove into the Pascagoula River in Moss Point, floated about 20 feet away from shore and started sinking, the Moss Point Police Department said in a statement.
“The driver of that vehicle stated she was following her GPS and did not realize she was going into the water,” police said…
…”I was just like, ‘I can’t let none of these folks die. They need to get out the water,'” Evans, a Pascagoula High School student, told Biloxi, Mississippi, ABC affiliate WLOX. “So, I just started getting them. I wasn’t even thinking about nothing else.”
One of Evans’ friends also jumped in and helped get the girls to the top of their vehicle, according to WLOX.
“I was behind them trying to keep them above water and swim with them at the same time,” Evans told the station.

Moss Point Police Officer Gary Mercer had responded to the scene and was bringing one person to shore when the individual “began panicking and caused him to go under swallowing some water,” according to Moss Point police.
As Officer Mercer struggled, Evans helped him to shore.
“I turned around. I see the police officer. He’s drowning. He’s going underwater, drowning, saying, ‘Help!'” Evans said. “So, I went over there. I went and I grabbed the police officer and I’m like swimming him back until I feel myself I can walk.”
Corion Evans is quite correctly being called a hero for saving four lives.
Here’s the WLOX news report about the incident including an interview with Evans and his mom.
The teen’s proud mom posted a photo of her son on Facebook with the caption, “❤️❤️MY HERO❤️❤️ My son saved 4 lives last night while risking his own life 3 females and a Moss Point police officer was pulled from the water thats four times he went in that water fighting to save those individuals Im so proud of you son for not giving up and saving lives!!”
Cora Watson, who was in the car also posted on Facebook that she was grateful for Corion for saving her life. She wrote, “[T]his man right here saved my life right before my last breath￼. I’m so thankful for him❤️.”
Evans was awarded a Certificate of Commendation for his heroism by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen/Alderwomen of Moss Point.
Proud mom, Cora, shared the news along with a photo on Facebook.
While the Regime Media makes sure to flood the country with stories of how there is “systemic racism” everywhere, it’s really nice to see a black teen rescue a white police officer.
This country isn’t the awful, racist hellhole that the Left says it is.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
