At the start of this dramatic video, you might think you’re watching a couple’s camera being stolen…But that is far from the truth.
The man in the video is a Thai fisherman who’s being hailed a hero after he came to the rescue of an elderly Norwegian couple who had become trapped in waist-high mud by the shore of the Krabi River.
The drama unfolded after the tourists had been taking pictures of birds along the shore of the river, only to find themselves trapped in mud when trying to make their way back up to the road. Shortly after they became stuck, the fisherman spotted them and hurried to help them out, first getting their expensive photography equipment to safe ground before trying his hardest to get them unstuck. At one point he even risked his own safety by lying down and getting his whole body dirty so that the stuck tourists could use it as a plank to pull themselves out of the mud. Luckily it worked, and as you can see in the video, everyone got out safely!
We need more people like that amazing man in the world.
