• A legless man takes pride on his being a traffic aide
• He said he will continue doing his job as long as he is healthy
• He said he prefers earning an honest living than depend on his relatives
How about another inspiring story?
Having no legs does not deter a man in Cebu City from making an honest living by managing traffic in a street in Cebu City.
In a video by Leleth Rumaguera of ABS-CBN News, 58-year-old Magdaleno Borces, wearing a traffic aide vest, a reflective glove and armed with a whistle, was seen directing vehicular traffic along Cabahug Street in the city.
According to Rumaguera, Borces is working as a traffic aide for a Cebu City private school and spends three hours a day – from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. – managing traffic. Borces said he does not mind the P300-per-week pay he receives from his employer; saying he prefers earning an honest living than depend on his relatives.
The differently-abled Borces, who lives alone in his own place, vowed to continue working as a traffic aide as long as he is healthy.
He is worth all the praises he is getting!
Watch him here!
