Stranger’s Intuition Saves Mumbai School Girl from Death Not Once, but Twice!
An 18-year-old girl in Mumbai would have been yet another statistic in this regard, had it not been for the serendipitous presence of Syed Nasser Hussain, a resident of Deonar, which is a suburb in the city. On Monday night, 43-year-old Hussain was heading home after closing his plumbing material store in Vashi, when he saw a ‘well-dressed’ young girl preparing to jump into the creek from the nearby bridge.
The class 12 student had already climbed over the railing to end her life. Wasting no time, he dropped his bike and dashed just in time to grab the girl before she took the deadly plunge. He then spent the next six hours counseling and comforting the girl, whose parents were at a hospital, as her mother had fallen ill.
