Every day we hear stories of people doing heroic acts of bravery, be it taking care of someone they’re not even related to, or just a simple deed that might be a lifesaver for others. But to risk your own life to save that of another – this is one of the ultimate acts of bravery and sacrifice man can ever do. Which is exactly what 61-year-old Francisco Erasmo Rodrigues de Lima did, a homeless man from Brazil, when he sacrificed his own life to save that of a woman he didn’t even know.

The hostage taker held a woman at gunpoint in front of a church in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
