Siblings from Dubai save man from drowning in hotel pool

Two Indian siblings from Dubai rescued a drowning man who accidentally slipped and fell into the pool of a hotel in India.

Alefiyah Akil, aged 17, and Abbas Akil, aged 13, were the only ones in the pool area of Fariyas Resort Lonavla who knew how to swim when the man fell into the pool, reported Gulf News.

The siblings immediately dove into the pool and worked together to push the man above water and pull him out of the pool.

“When I saw it was a man drowning, I jumped in without thinking twice,” said Alefiyah Akil.

“He was petrified and trying to hold on to anything he could. I was struggling to keep him and myself afloat because he was inadvertently dragging me down with him, and he was a heavy man,” she added.

Both siblings said that they do not have professional experience in swimming or rescue and only relied on the fact that they know how to swim.

“I trust my swimming, I’ve been swimming from a small age…I couldn’t just leave him there, knowing I could swim. I did what I had to, I wasn’t really scared,” Alefiyah said.
