NDRF rescue officer save child from Kerala flood
Kanhaiya Kumar, an NDRF rescue officer who saved the life of a child in the flood-affected town of Idukki in Kerala, has been getting a lot of praise on social media after a video of the rescue operations went viral.
The video shows Kumar running across a bridge carrying the child in his arms as waves swept the bridge seconds later. The child was suffering from high fever and had to be shifted to a nearby hospital.
Kumar, who hails from Bihar, said he did not expect such positive reaction from the public. “I realised that I can help the child by taking him to the nearest hospital and I exactly did that. I didn’t know that with just a small act of mine I would become famous
