“My Immediate Reaction was to Jump into the Canal and Try to Save Them. But I Cannot Swim. So I Removed My Turban and Used It to Save the Boys”

On 27 September 2015 in Sangrur, Punjab, India, four boys who were taking part in a religious ceremony in which Ganesha idols were immersed at Sular Ghat lost their footing in a canal and were in danger of drowning. Two Sikh men removed their turbans — something normally done only at home — and tossed one end to the boys and rescued them. Inderpal Singh, who was sitting on a bank of the canal watching the ceremony, said, “I had no time to think and quickly removed my turban and threw [one end to] the drowning boys and pulled them in.” On the other bank of the canal, Kanwaljit Singh did the same thing. He said, “My immediate reaction was to jump into the canal and try to save them. But I cannot swim. So I removed my turban and used it to save the boys.”
