deja vu

From the 3/14/08 issue of the Week: “A Chinese man is being hailed as a hero for diving into a pond to save a drowning 7-year old boy — 20 years after he jumped into the same pond to save the boy’s father. Wang Weiqing, 58, sprang into action when he saw the child struggling in the water as he walked past. Only when the boy’s grandfather arrived did the two men recall their previous encounter two decades earlier.”

Like father like son? Dad never taught the kid how to swim, or to stay out of the same freaking pond that almost killed him 20 years ago?!
