A young boy in Bangladesh risked his life in a surging river to rescue a drowning baby deer, prompting cheers from locals who weren’t sure whether Belal would reach the other side or be swept away. [x]
The rest of “Boy Risks Life to Save Baby Deer from Drowning”, by David Strege of GrindTV. The photographs were captured by wildlife photographer Hasibul Wahab.
Wildlife photographer Hasibul Wahab captured the heroic moments in photos from Noakhali, Bangladesh, where torrential rain caused fast-rising floods, causing the deer to be separated from its family, according to Caters News Agency and the U.K. MailOnline.
Belal, as you can see in the photos (which tell the whole story), grabbed the baby deer by its legs with one hand and held it high over his head as he trudged through the water, sometimes with his head fully submerged.
It was during those tense moments that onlookers believed the boy might perish. But the young teen persevered.
“He was such a brave boy—the river was so full of water and it was high tide so we thought he might drown,” Wahab told MailOnline. “My friend was even ready to jump into the river to save the boy. But he made it, and when he returned, we thanked the boy.”
Only about seven people witnessed the act of bravery and kindness, according to Wahab.
“It was a phenomenal sight,” he said.
Wahab told MailOnline that locals lose a lot of deer during the rainy season and are forced to do all they can to protect them, such as going to extreme measures like a young teenaged boy named Belal did.

How the Geneva Drive (the mechanical step that makes the second hand on a clock work by turning constant rotation into intermittent motion) works.
While most of a candle’s wax is consumed by the fire, the rest of the wax melts away from the flame from the heat before they reach combustion temperature. You can recycle a candle several times (or combine the residue of several candles into a whole candle), if only the wax didn’t melt into a messy puddle.
The melting wax of Benjamin Shine’s “Rekindle Candle” drains through the base of the candle into the hallow stem of the candle-holder. As the candle burns, the melting wax accumulates inside the transparent stem and solidifies around a dangling wick. Once the candle (or several candles) on top has finished burning, simply crack open the stem to find a newly-formed candle.
According to Reddit, the newly-formed candle was actually formed from the residue wax of several candles. Hence, “Rekindle Candle” and not “Infinite Candle”.
