In a great act of bravery, a man who fell into lower falls at Golden Ears Provincial Park in British Columbia Canada was rescued by a group of Sikh hikers who took off their turbans to make a makeshift rope.
A video of the incident has been doing rounds on social media. The turbaned men can be seen putting their religious code aside to save the lives of hikers.
The video was shared via WhatsApp by Kuljinder Kinda who had gone hiking with his friends and slipped and fell into a pool below the waterfall.
The hikers reportedly requested them to call emergency services which they could not do due to poor connectivity in the area. Acting swiftly at the moment, the men came up with the brilliant idea that saved lives.
Netizens are lauding these Sikhs for for their bravery. While some thanked the men for their quick response and presence of mind, others credited Canada’s multiculturalism that let people from different ethnicities wear symbols of their culture on their sleeves.
