This man in total has saved more than 400 people from a terrible act. However, he has no special skills, and he never contacted the police for help.
What does he do to make people change their mind? Nothing extraordinary - he just warmly smiles at them and invites them into his house.“Do you want to go for a cup of tea?”- he says to people who so need support.
For half a century he saved many dozens of lives, for which he was even nicknamed“Australian guardian angel”.
The first impression when you see this place in the photo is an idyllic landscape in the lap of nature. But it is well known: the first impression is deceptive. This cape is notorious as a place of suicides. Fortunately for many people who have decided to commit suicide, an amazing man lives here across the road.
Standing and watching the cape is a habit developed over the years. As soon as Don sees a person behaving strangely or suspiciously, he immediately rushes to him and tries to speak.
And although it is impossible to save everyone, the old man makes every effort to keep the dead as little as possible.
Here is what the mother of the girl saved by this man says:“He's just an angel! Most people would not do anything, turn away and just leave. And he had the courage, wisdom and spiritual warmth to keep my girl from the worst.
