Heroic Boy Risks His Life To Save A Drowning Baby Deer From Floodwaters In Bangladesh
A photographer in Bangladesh has captured photographs of a daring and heartwarming rescue hero that will restore your faith in humanity.
When a baby deer was separate from its family by a flooded river in Noakhali, Bangladesh, its chances for survival were slim. But Belal, a local boy believed to be in his early teens, braved the rainwater-swollen river to reunite the fawn with its family. As the photos show, the swift river waters were at times above the boy’s head – all that was visible was his hand skillfully holding the baby deer by all four legs.
Hasibul Wahab, the wildlife photographer who captured the daring rescue, was as impressed by the boy’s heroism as he was worried for his safety. “My friend was even ready to jump into the river to save the boy. But he made it, and when he returned, we thanked the boy,” he said. “There were only five to seven people observe this situation but it was a phenomenal sight.”
