Amid the immense tragedy we witnessed following twin suicide bombings in Beirut on Tuesday, a flicker of humanity remains.

In a country with a dire record of human rights abuses against migrant domestic workers, this man was spotted heroically coming to the aid of at least two of these women who were visibly injured in the blasts. We don't know his name, or his relationship to the women, but we know one thing for sure: in the face of such great loss and despair, it's heartwarming to see one human being reaching out to another, regardless of race, background, belief or color.

We'd love to know the identity of this man. Share this story so we can pay tribute to one hero out of many heroes who came to the rescue of those injured during Tuesday's bombings.

The hero has identified himself in the comments section below our post. His name is Khaled Alsalhani.
