Father and son duo save lives in India's Yamuna river

Help

A 12-year-old boy living next to the Yamuna river in the Indian capital, Delhi, has become a local hero after saving the lives of numerous people carried off by the river's strong currents.

Sagar Nath Kashyap works as a fisherman but, along with his father, has taken it upon himself to rescue people from the water as it is thought that the area's emergency services are often too slow to respond in time.
