If you are hesitating on calling your plumber because of a pipe breaking, hesitate no more! Call hero Jimmie Cox from Texas, because this 23-year-old is a lifesaver indeed! When Andrea Adams noticed a murky build-up in her front yard, she decided to call Action Municipal Unity and that’s when they sent a hero. As he took the situation in his hands in the bravest way possible, the internet went crazy after the photo of his deed went viral.
Homeowner Andrea Adams took a photo of Jimmie Cox, from Granbury, Texas, as he was facing down in a puddle of muddy water last summer in 2016. The picture quickly got attention on the social media and it has been shared thousands of times on Facebook and local media. People were quick to praise this utility man’s dedication to his job.
Jimmie arrived to help Andrea with her problem and he decided it called for more than a few tools. He actually had to dive in to see what was going on. In the meantime, Andrea went inside her home for a bit but when she came back, she was shocked. The utility worker was up to his waist in the muddy water headfirst. At first, she couldn’t believe her own eyes, but then she quickly snapped the pic of the dedicated repairman and posted it on Facebook.
Andrea wasn’t the only one who was amazed by his deed. A lot of people started commenting and praising the brave young man. Jimmie was actually immersed in a 5 1/2 feet-deep hole, and that’s just beyond impressive!
Fifty-five-year-old actor Milke Rowe also saw the picture and was impressed by it. Interestingly, he even offered to buy Jimmie a beer. The famous host of the Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs took to Facebook to give him a shout out:
“I don’t know who this guy is, but he’s all over my wall, all over Facebook, and all over the Internet. Hell of a thing to have your photo go viral, and still remain completely anonymous. At any rate, if you recognize him, tell him the first beer is on me…”
That was not all! The denim company Wrangler also offered Jimmie some fresh new denim! Interestingly, Jimmie was wearing Wrangler jeans that day and the North Carolina-based company decided to gift the young man with a year’s worth of their denim goods to replace his dirty ones.
Jimmie explained that what he did was just his job. According to him, he didn’t see a need for the fuss.
At the end of the day, he is still a real hero!
