A drone pilot has earned the distinction of being paid to help out in a firefighting operation, and is being hailed by local media as an “unsung hero”.
Colombia’s president is in Colombia to deliver a major address on Sunday.
The President is to deliver the address, which will be the country’s biggest political address since it declared a national day of mourning for the December 12 attack on a church that killed at least 23 people.
The attack, in the city of Medellin, was one of the worst attacks in the country since the war on drugs began.
It was the deadliest attack in the history of Colombia, which has suffered more than 500,000 deaths since 1998.
The pilot was among a group of firefighters who were working in a rural area in the capital Bogota, where the number of fatalities has risen sharply over the past year.
He was in a helicopter with a crew of seven, and was flying the aircraft as part of a fire fighter’s group.
The drone is a type of remote-controlled aircraft, which allows the pilot to move from one location to another, but it is used by firefighters to help them fight fires.
This pilot was also working with the military, who had to use helicopters in a fight against the drug cartels in the area.
The plane had been rented by a private company, which had agreed to pay the pilot the money if he could do one thing for the firefighters in a certain area.
However, the pilot decided that he would take on the job, which is not uncommon.
Colombian authorities have said the pilots pay about $300 a month.
Colonel Ricardo Ruiz, spokesman for Colombia’s National Police, said the pilot was paid $300 for doing the firefighting.
“This pilot paid for the operation because he wanted to help,” he said.
“This is not an act of charity, it’s an act to save lives.”
A man who lives in the village of Quechua, which was the scene of the attack, said that he heard about the drone pilot.
“We were able to get a message to the fire brigade and the helicopters, and then the pilots came,” he told Al Jazeera.
“The drones came and saved our lives.”
However, he said that his village had lost two people who were killed by the fire, and that the pilot had been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“There are people who are afraid of being shot in the head, and this guy is helping them to get out,” he added.
Ruiz said that the commander of the fire fighters in Quechu was very upset, and expressed his gratitude to the pilot.
