Dynamo [Moscow] Footballer saves a drowning woman
Kevin Kuranyi, attacker for Dynamo Moscow, saved a drowning woman while on holiday according to the Bild newspaper.
The German was taking his Christmas holidays in Rio-de-Janeiro on the coast of the Atlantic ocean. One day, tanning with his friends on the beach, he noticed an elderly woman who couldn’t cope with current and was waving her hands. As a friend of the footballer, Bernard Werber Ramos de Lacerda said, there was nobody nearby, and he and Kuranyi immediately threw themselves to her assistance, dragging the emaciated woman out of the water.
Kuranyu himself, commenting on the incident, expressed that he was happy that everything had ended well, adding that there’s no time to think in situations like this, you need to act spontaneously.

Couldn’t have been one of ours.

Ours could, but not Egyptian hotel staff.

He’s a Turk not a German.

No, he’s Brazilian
Strange name. Both for a German, and an attacker for Dynamo.

His roots are a long way from being only German. His father is from a German-Hungarian background, his mother is from Panama, and he was born in Brazil.

Is this a subtle hint that only Russians should play for Russian teams?

Dynamo have more Russians that come out on the field than any other championship leading team.

It’s not just Dynamo, it’s all Russian teams.
This is much more heroic than, say, Hitzlsperger’s announcement, which has been blown up into some kind of great feat.
Sea currents are really very dangerous. I remember the story of a teacher who drowned in the Azov sea saving his students.

Something like this happened to me once. The bloke turned out to be massive. He’s alive. I’ve never seen anyone bigger than him. Kuranyi is a good man! You don’t think about anything in situations like this. I know.
Good man! Honour and respect to him!
Nice one! Respect!
Well done! An action worthy of everyone’s respect.
What is there to discuss? Kuranyi is a good man, full stop!
If I were his team, I’d have fined him a year’s salary. His life belongs to the team! What if he’d drowned saving the woman? The team would suffer a big loss. Or are they insured against risks like this?
