A police officer from Rochdale, England has been praised after he risked his life to save a man from drowning.
PC Mohammed Nadeem dived into a freezing river after he noticed a man struggling to stay afloat.
Speaking to Manchester Evening News, he said:
“I thought this person might not survive, so I jumped into the water to save him.”
“Somehow I managed to get to him and bring him to a place of safety. I wouldn’t say I’m a good swimmer, especially in deep flowing water.
“Saving him is the best feeling in the job. We are there to protect people, to save people.
Watch the dramatic rescue below:
“…if anyone kills a person- unless in retribution for murder or spreading corruption in the land- it is as if he kills all mankind, while if any saves a life it is as if he saves the lives of all mankind…” Qur’an, 5:32
