Canada: Five Sikh men use their turbans to save a hiker near a waterfall

The five Sikh guys are seen tossing a rope made out of their turbans towards the man who has fallen into the pool in a video that has gone viral on social media.

A group of hikers rescued a life by using their turbans to pull out a guy who had fallen into the cold waters of Golden Ears waterfall.

The Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue (SAR) team received a call about two hikers in danger, according to local media. One individual had fallen into the pool above the falls and was unable to get out, according to SAR manager Rick Laing.

However, before the rescue squad could arrive, a group of five guys rushed to the scene.

Laing tells the media, “Five young males hiking past rendered them aid by taking their turbans off, tying them together and making one long rope.”

Here’s the link to the video:

The man, who was in his mid-20s, was quickly rescued, according to the story.

According to Laing, “The rocks there are quite slick and it can be really difficult to get back out of it, especially if you are wet and cold. So, they were fortunate that these five young men happened by and were able to get him out and back up to the trail.”

He said it was unclear if the man fell into the pool or failed to see the warning signs, but he was fortunate to be rescued.

He said, adding that the teen could have, “Certainly if he had stayed in the pool any longer he could have succumbed to hypothermia. He could have been swept over the falls.”

As per the report, “Most certainly suffered broken limbs or maybe even death if he had gone over the falls.”
