KUALA LUMPUR, June 15 — Malaysian model and the first runner-up for Miss Global International 2022, Sandra Lim won the hearts of social media users for her quick and selfless response on stage.
The 21-year-old was among the first to assist a presenter who had fallen off the stage during last Saturday’s Miss Global 2022 coronation ceremony at the Nusa Dua Convention Centre in Bali, Indonesia.
The video shared on TikTok by user instafashionpageant showed Lim lining up on stage with other finalists during the crowning ceremony when the presenter suddenly fell into a hole at the centre of the stage.
The KL-born and former national athlete was seen rushing to the presenter without hesitation before she was joined by a couple of production crew members who then proceeded to aid the fallen presenter.
