Heros and Saints

On a large cruise ship, an elderly woman fell overboard, immediately afterward there was another splash.

A young man, swam toward her and managed to save the elderly woman.  The two were brought back onboard the ship.  For his act of bravery, the Captain of the ship called for a special ceremonial dinner.  The entire crew, and all of the passengers were present as the parents praised the young man for his heroic dive into the sea.  
They presented him with a gift certificate, and a plaque, as well as a free pass to ride the cruise line for life.  The Captain repeatedly called the young man a "hero," and asked him to share a few words.
The young man only said one thing:
"I just have one question, after the woman fell in, who pushed me off of the ship?"
