Quick thinking by two Sikh men in Punjab, to set aside religious protocol, saved four youngsters from drowning at Sular Ghaat near Sunam village.

The youngsters, aged between 18-25 years, hailing from Sarafa Bazaar Market had gone to a canal to immerse a Ganesha idol on Friday but were swept away into the water, due to a strong current.

Inderpal Singh who was sitting on embankment of the canal, noticed that the youths were drowning and the 24-year-old immediately took off his turban and tossed it to the drowning men, reports add.

Another Sikh, Kanwaljit Singh followed suit and also removed his turban to save the boys.

The incident came to light after a video went viral on social media.

In May this year, 22-year-old Harman Singh had used his turban to save the life of a boy who bled from the head after being hit by a car in New Zealand.
