In a time of crisis the bravest individual can be the community itself, acting at a second's notice as a single, well-orchestrated entity on the move to save one of it's own. Check out this daring rescue by villagers of a four-year-old boy from probable death during flash floods in India's Madhya Pradesh state Saturday:
Chiku Banvasi went to have a bath on the banks of river Narmada with his uncle at about 10 a.m. Saturday. When flash floods suddenly consumed the river, Chiku was left behind. Relatives and villagers jumped into the vicious floods, swimming down river to miraculously rescue the young boy from the treacherous waters. The Telegraph reports that Chiku lost consciousness after swallowing water in the river, but received medical treatment and is now in stable condition at a local hospital.
