Some situations require quick thinking and immediate action. Mouhammad Fada Diouf, a Senegalese immigrant, realized this and didn’t hesitate to do what was needed when a stranger almost lost his life right before his eyes.
Mouhammad was hanging out with some friends when they saw a 72-year-old man lose his balance and fall into River Nervión in Bilbao, Spain. Many people stood by and recorded what was happening on their phones, but none of them were helping.
“He was in a bad situation, so I decided to save him, to help him,” Mouhammad said. “Because I know how to swim I knew that I could do it.”
The hero kept the man afloat for 15 minutes before he became too exhausted. Thankfully, others had joined him by then, and they were able to hold the man up until a boat arrived to carry them all to safety.
Watch this incredible act of bravery in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story.
