Before trying to take down Spiderman as the Green Goblin, Hollywood actor Willem Dafoe was at the EDSA People Power Revolution in 1986.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actor recalled how he marched with thousands of Filipino people who wanted then President Ferdinand Marcos to step down from his office.

Dafoe flew to Manila to work on the film Platoon, for which he was nominated best supporting actor.

“I arrived in the Philippines and my plane was the last plane in because there was a revolution. ‘Sit tight, the movie’s canceled, we’ll get you out when we can.’ So for about three or four days, me and a couple of other people that were there ahead of time were out on the streets with the people.

After the revolution, the movie resumed production and Dafoe, along with the other casts and film crew, returned to the country to shoot the movie.

“It was an incredible feeling because it was a revolution that happened for the most part without violence,” he said.—AAC

A 5-year-old boy in Georgia, United States, was able to save his family when their home caught fire.

In a Facebook post of the Bartow County Fire Department (BCFD), 5-year-old Noah Woods woke up to find his bedroom on fire and the only way out was through a window.

Noah was able to save his 2-year-old sister and their dog through the window and woke his uncle up next door to alert the rest of the family.

“Noah and 4 other family members were treated for minor burns and smoke inhalation. Noah is credited for saving himself and 7 other family members,” the post reads.

BCFD Chief Dwayne Jamison will recognize him as an Honorary Bartow County Firefighter and present him with a Lifesaving Award.—AAC
