The oil refinery recognized 23 people who put themselves at risk to save others in peril, and awarded them a total of 140 million won ($119,000), the company said.
“The courage of unsung heroes can be a source of inspiration to many people,” said CEO Hussain Al-Qahtani. “S-Oil will continue to serve as a reliable custodian of unsung heroes, so that their deeds can earn respect from society,” he added.
S-Oil has held the Hero Citizens Award ceremony since 2008 to encourage and support those who go out of their ways to save others at risk.
