During the rainy season in Noakhali, Bangladesh, the rivers rise and the current grows stronger.
It would be crazy to go swimming...that's why people were shocked when they saw a teenage boy in the perilous waters.
The boy is Belal. He had seen a baby deer fall into the river and jumped in without a moment's hesitation.
He held the fawn above water with just one arm, while he himself remained submerged. People looked on, anxiously waiting for him to surface.
Slowly, his head emerged from beneath the water...
He made his way onto dry land to the cheers of others from his town.
They were both cold, wet, and exhausted... but alive.
That is the face of one grateful little baby!
The fawn collapsed on the ground, a bit shaken from its near-death experience.
Slowly, it got to its feet and made its way back to its family.
Although animals can't talk, I bet these worried parents were very grateful to the young boy who risked his life to save their precious baby.
