A video shows a South African policeman getting into a flowing river to save a little girl, who went missing from her home while playing with the son of her mom’s friend.

Sergeant Setjakadume Thobejane took off his uniform and jumped into the river the Blesbok River near Slovo Park, Springs in Ekurhuleni, to save a three-year-old girl, who held on for dear life or the water would have washed her away.

According to the Springs policeman, when he and his two fellow officers, Sergeant John Nkuna and Constable Solomon Mtshweni, found the little girl, she was wet, cold and crying.

The stream was so strong, Nkuna and Mtshweni had to hold Thobejane’s clothes so that he had something to hold onto while trying not to be swept away.

When Thobejane saved her, he wrapped her in his jersey to keep her warm. Other people said the river had swallowed others before.

Residents saw the girl playing the street on Thursday, June 21, around 2pm when a man showed up and led her away, the Daily Sun reported.
