Life continues to be paralyzed in Karachi ever since the spell of heavy monsoon rain wreaked havoc. With the rain that left much of the port city waterlogged, came the endless suffering. While the government is sleeping in times of crisis, the high spirited Karachiites have taken it upon themselves to help the stranded civilians during the heavy downpour. A man in Karachi jumps to save a man from drowning in underpass water.
Not all heroes wear capes, and this brave man Naseeb Khan has proven it! While passing through Shahrah-e-Faisal, Khan saw a huge crowd of people gathered at the top of the Drigh Road underpass, looking down at the underpass. Upon seeing a man drowning in the swamp of the underground tunnel, Khan instantly took off his shirt and jumped into the water.
It is to be noted that without a second thought, this fearless man jumps from the height of about 25 feet into the underpass to save a drowning man in Karachi. We do not come across such courageous and big-hearted people every day. Especially in times when everybody is running for their own life, to see something like this is quite rare.
WATCH: How brave Karachi man saved a dying man!
A large number of people can be seen in the footage gathered around and recording the scenario. Out of all these people, it was only Khan who went on to save the man from dying.
Millions of residents have been exposed to urban flooding after rain lashed Karachi last week. While some areas have recovered, others seem to be on the path to recovery. In some areas, the water is still waist-high and has not receded.
In addition to this, the metropolis and its residents continue to struggle. Several houses, roads, and some underpasses are still submerged. As if this were not enough, unrelenting power outages in many localities have left them in the dark and off the grid for over 70 hours and counting.
Karachiites also rescued a team of stranded policemen in the recent rains. Needless to say, it is always a pleasure to see a survivor. We definitely need more people who are as selfless and kind as Khan. Hats off to him for his bravery and generosity!
