Noong Biyernes, July 5, sa official Facebook fanpage ng The Filipino Flash na si Nonito Donaire, Jr., nakapost ang ganitong shoutout:
“Boxing champ Nonito Donaire Jr’s wife, Rachel Marcial-Donaire, was admitted in a hospital for fetal monitoring after saving a drowning kid.
“During 4th of July, a friend’s son disappeared underneath the water. Rachel didn’t hesitate to jump in to save the kid but injured herself in the process. Nonito said she "moved so quickly it scared me."
“Rachel woke up with sharp pain and was admitted in the hospital where she was monitored for over an hour and was diagnosed with a strained ligament.
“Doctors say baby is unaffected. She was ordered bed rest for a couple days. Rachel is on her 9th month this July with their first child and they are expecting a boy.”
Ngayong araw, July 7, tatlong mambabatas ang nakatakdang mag-file ng resolusyon sa kongreso para papurihan ang ginawang kabayanihan ni Rachel.
Sa ulat ng abs-cbnnews.com, sinabi dito na pagpapakita ng katapangan at kabayanihan ang pagsagip ng asawa ni Nonito sa batang nalulunod kahit daw kabuwanan na nito at sa pag lagay nito sa alanganin sa ipinagbubuntis nito.
Ayon kay Davao Rep. Karlo Alexei Nograles,"The Donaire couple is truly a source of pride and inspiration for all of us Filipinos. This news that Rachel risked her own life to save another person’s life is an exceptional display of courage and heroism."
Dalawa pang kongresista ang nakikiayon kay Nograles at makakasama nitong mag-file ng resolusyon. Ito ay sina Iloilo Rep. Jerry Treñas at Samar Rep. Mel Senen Sarmiento.
Kuwento pa ni Congressman Treñas, "This story about Mrs. Donaire is really heart-warming. Things like these remind me every day that there is still hope for Filipinos and I’m sure many of our kababayans also feel the same."
Sa ngayon ay patuloy pa ring bumubuhos ang mga mensahe ng papuri sa Twitter account ng boksingero na @filipinoflash.
