"Nobody Dies On My Birthday" Alaskan Good Samaritan Saves Man From Drowning On Birthday

“I just knew at that point there was no way I could let this man die. If I had 1 percent chance of saving his life, I was gonna try it.”

Sounds like a line from a 80’s action movie but thats the line Obadiah Jenkins gave after pulling a drowning man out of a raging Alaskan river. Pure act of rugged heroism. They say folks really take care of each other up in AK and I believe it.

“I remember, first time he opened his eyes, that I could tell he was breathing on his own, I said to him, ‘Nobody dies on my birthday. I could tell I got a little rise out of him because his eyes went to the side a little bit like, ‘Yeah, OK.'”
