Kottayam: Albin, a 14-year-boy from Thiruvalla, turned a saviour for a woman who attempted suicide by jumping into the river here on Tuesday.
While playing with friends in his residence, he noticed a woman jumping into the river. Without wasting much time, he rushed to the river bank and jumped into the river to rescue the woman from drowning.
He covered Manimalayar river which flows on the stretch of 50 metres within minutes.
With all strength, he dragged the woman from drowning and swam towards the bank holding her hand.
Though he looked weak after the effort in the rescue mission, the 8th standard student’s face revealed his happiness to save a life.
The 39-year-old woman jumped into the river near Thirumoolapuram around 6.30 pm on Tuesday.
The woman reached Thiruvalla for the funeral of her family friend.
Kuttur grama panchayat president KG Sanju and Albin’s father Babu took the woman to Thiruvalla taluk hospital. The lady had decided to end her life due to family problems.
Albin is son of Kuttur natives Babu and Ancy.
