Sometimes, people go to incredible lengths to save another life. In that incredible moment, all fear and worry take a back seat and bravery takes over.
That’s exactly what happened for this young boy from Noakhali, Bangladesh, who risked his life to save a baby deer from drowning. The deer had been separated from its family during flood rains and was struggling in the water.
He could have died in the process, but managed to save the deer from a terrible fate.
A wildlife photographer, Hasibul Wahab, who happened to be on site during Belal’s courageous act, told the Daily Mail, “He was such a brave boy–the river was so full of water and it was high tide so we thought he might drown.”
He continued, “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.”
And we know the deer must have thanked him as well, as he was finally able to reunite with his family!
We’re constantly inspired by the bravery and selflessness shown by everyday people. Stories like this remind us that we all have the power to be heroes!
