While running his errands on a motorbike along a waterway in Shaoxing, Zhejiang on Oct 13, a young delivery man notices a girl who had fallen in while washing her mop.
Without thinking twice, he jumps into the rather murky-looking water to save her from an impending drowning.
When he notices that the six-year-old has only one shoe on, he goes back into the river to fish out her other shoe.
“I noticed the girl only had one shoe on, the other one was in the river,” he was quoted as saying in local press reports. “Since I had already gotten myself wet, I thought it was no big deal to go back in again to retrieve her shoe.”
An everyday hero the world needs!
