A 73-year-old man in China was working outside when he heard screams for help nearby. The screams were from the brother of a 1-year-old girl who had just fallen into a pit of water. The water was over 6 feet deep and the little girl was not able to get out of it.
As soon as he heard the cries for help, the elderly man got up and rushed over to save the child. Despite having weak legs, the man ran over as fast as he could and jumped in the cold water. He actually couldn't get up by himself after reaching the little girl because the water was too cold. So nearby residents came to help him out.
