A Sri Lankan in Italy is in critical condition after saving a girl from drowning today, the Italian media reported.
The Sri Lankan man had jumped into a river in Rivolta d’Adda to save the girl who was being swept away by strong currents.
He and several others formed a human chain to pull the girl to safety.
The girl was rescued but the man who was right in front of the human chain, lost his grip and was pulled away by the currents.
Rescue workers later found the Sri Lankan man and airlifted him to hospital where he is in critical condition. (Colombo Gazette)
