And then you see the rescuers, in a more pitiful condition
than the victims themselves, and they can hardly stand on
their feet from fatigue, and their faces glow when they say:

          "We saved a little girl!".

Really, what has happened with the famous saying
"homo homini lupus" in these cases?

Why don't all these "wolves" attack and eat the girl,
as hungry as they are, but rather risk their own life
to save her?
