Since being shared online, the video of the rescue has received over five thousand views along with several reactions from Twitter users. Twitterati came together in appreciating Kumar’s actions and lauded him for saving the lives of these four men. A user wrote, “Super sir, great job sir."
However, this is not the first such video to have garnered netzines’ appreciation. Earlier, a clip of a Tamil Nadu woman police officer rescuing an unconscious man during recent floods had gone viral on the internet.
Inspector E Rajeswari had received a call from the control room telling her that a man had apparently died after a tree branch fell on him.
The cop rushed to the spot and during the rescue figured that the man under the tree was still alive. After bringing him out, Rajeswari carried him onto his shoulder before rushing him to the hospital in a rickshaw. Rajeswari’s quick efforts proved to be life-saving for the man who was later reported to be out of danger.
The female cop’s heroics got a lot of appreciation for her efforts and the man credited her for giving a new life to the man.
