A photographer in Bangladesh has captured photographs of a daring and heartwarming rescue hero that will restore your faith in humanity. When a baby deer was separate from its family by a flooded river in Noakhali, Bangladesh, its chances for survival were slim. But Belal, a local boy believed to be in his early teens, braved the rainwater-swollen river to reunite the fawn with its family.
As the photos show, the swift river waters were at times above the boy’s head – all that was visible was his hand skillfully holding the baby deer by all four legs.
A brave boy fearlessly risked his own life to save a helpless baby deer from drowning.
The boy called Belal plunged through the surging river to save the animal.
Wildlife photographer Hasibul Wahab captured the brave act while visiting on a photography trip.
During the ordeal onlookers were unsure whether the boy was going to appear again.
The boy called Belal defiantly held the young fawn in one hand above his head.
When he finally made it to the other side the locals cheered as the deer was reunited with its family.
