The photographer is from Bangladesh, and he captured photographs of a daring and heartwarming rescue hero that will restore your faith in humanity.

When a baby deer was separate from its family by a flooded river, its chances for survival were slim. But Belal, a local boy believed to be in his early teens, braved the rainwater-swollen river to reunite the fawn with its family.


Hasibul Wahab, the wildlife photographer who captured the daring rescue, was as impressed by the boy’s heroism as he was worried for his safety.

“My friend was even ready to jump into the river to save the boy. But he made it, and when he returned, we thanked the boy,” he said. “There were only five to seven people observe this situation but it was a phenomenal sight.”

During the rescue, the onlookers weren’t sure if Balal was going to survive himself because the river was moving so quickly and pulling him downstream. But Balal eventually made it, and he reunited the baby deer with his family.
