When a brave mother of 3 risked her life to save a baby boy from the wreckage of a car, she showed bravery beyond belief.
Her heroic deed has spread through the internet world and she is applauded for her courage and care.
She claims she did what any mother would do, and was thinking about her 2 kids, Tangi and Ombili, the whole time.
Tulonga remembers how little Dex clung to her after she picked him up.
Messages were flooding Tulonga's Facebook, but she cared more about baby Dex than popularity.
I was so worried about that boy. When I had to hand him over to the paramedics at the accident scene, I prayed and prayed he would be okay, because I did not know if his parents were killed in the accident.
Tolunga got to see Dex on Tuesday and she was very happy to know he is alright.
Praise God, I was so happy to hold that boy.
Tulonga is hailed as a hero for her courageous actions:
