There is video footage circulating the net showing two strangers helping a woman in a wheelchair who fell into the water. She fell off a cruise ship dock while in St. Thomas a week ago.
The woman, who was a guest on the Carnival Fascination cruise ship, was with a family member before falling into the Virgin Islands waters. After noticing, a pair of local entertainers dove into the water to save her.
The men in the viral footage are Kashief Hamilton, a DJ, and Randolph Donovan, a stilt dance. Donovan was saying into NBC that he was on the top level of the deck before diving in o the water. He said he was sure to remove her from the wheelchair because he did not want it to sink while she was on in it.

Hamilton was sure to write about the incident on his Facebook account, stating that he and Donovan are doing well.
“Wake up this morning set and ready to go Dj on WICO Dock for the tourist coming in on the carnival ship not knowing i will be saving a tourist life,” Hamilton wrote. “Thank God we all are safe and sound. The love that is coming is tremendous, and i want to say thank you to each and everyone.”
However, the commissioner for the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism was able to share a picture of the two. He even was able to honor the two on Facebook as well.
“I want to thank and acknowledge two members of our Visitor Experience team at the Department of Tourism — Kashief Hamilton and Randolph Donovan, Jr. — who went above the call of duty yesterday to save a disabled Carnival Fascination passenger from drowning at The West Indian Company (WICO) dock,” Boschulte wrote.
“Our team at the Department of Tourism truly value their heroic efforts, and thanks to them, a young visitor’s life was saved,” he added. “We often say that ‘Tourism Is All of Us,’ and Kashief and Randolph truly embodied that message.”
