In other heartwarming Briefly.co.za news, earlier this week the story of how a brave cop had saved an old lady from drowning in a vicious river was shared online and soon went viral. The South African Police service have now released a detailed statement about the heroic event.
“I heard the granny screaming in the bushy area already inside the river asking for help. I couldn’t even see her, but used my amateur swimming skills and made my way through the thorny branches and into the muddy Kgoptjane River.
"I was not afraid to drown as my focus was to rescue the granny. I told her that I am here to rescue and save her life. It was frightening moment for her. She asked me how I am going to rescue her seeing that I don’t even have a rope. I asked her to take a grip of my belt as I started swimming with her towards the bank of the river. I spent almost five minutes in the river struggling to reach the bank," said the brave officer.
