Wu Jing, a 31-year-old mother of a 7-month-old child, said she was "totally flattered" by the attention she has received after her heroics Saturday, though she didn't see herself as extraordinary, CNTV reported.

Reference John's story, there is a photo of the woman and child in the link below. She was awarded 200k Yen, and given paid leave while in the hospital and during her recovery. Such a cute baby, nice to hear something good, there is so much bad and very sick news today.
