A police officer is being hailed as a hero after he dived into a canal to rescue a mother and her two children.
The officer from Surat Thani, pulled the threesome from a pick-up that was submerging in the canal, without fear for his own safety.
Driver Bunchu Phrompetch, 46, was heading home following a shopping trip with her two young daughters, when she was forced to take evasive action to avoid an oncoming motorcyclist but as a result, her Isuzu plunged into the canal.
Brave hero, Constable Phayon Chuayyim, 48, raced to to the scene to assist in the rescue. The mother and daughters were pulled through a window and taken to safety.
“It was all in a days work” said the constable. Humble words following his act of courage.
Thankfully no one was seriously injured in the incident.
It is unclear what happened to the motorcyclist or if they stopped to assist.
