Three young sailors of the Indian Navy, Akash ME I, Dhananjay SEA I and Vishwakarma ME I, were instrumental in rescuing a man who had fallen into the sea off Marine Drive on the night of September 9, 2018.
The sailors were visiting Marine Drive when they noticed people gathered at a spot nearby. On reaching the spot, they observed a man drowning about 150 m into the sea.
Akash, a Ship's Diver, Dhananjay, a good swimmer, and Vishwakarma, a Marine Commando, immediately jumped into the water and swam out towards the drowning man and brought him to safety. Their selfless and prompt act of bravery is in keeping with the finest traditions of the Indian Navy.
