It is good to be courageous and overcome fear. But, it is not always wise to step into risks and show bravery. When luck is unfavourable, it can invite trouble and may even prove fatal.

Recently, a video surfaced on the internet that shows a horrific incident in which a girl child gets swept away by high tides while she is enjoying the natural scenario under risky circumstances. However, luckily she gets saved by the quick action of a bystander.

In the video, the girl can be seen standing nearby the shore on a sloppy pathway. Meanwhile, high tides hit the shores terrifyingly. Several others can be seen above adjacent to the sloppy pathway.

At first, the girl braves the high tide while holding the steel bars installed on the pathway. However, the second time the tides are more furious and the girl fails to control her balance. As a result, she slips down. Though she holds on to the bar, her hands slip and she gets swept away by the high tide.

Meanwhile, two other persons rush ahead to the girl, but she gets driven away by the strong waves to the other side of the structure.

Luckily, a bystander rushes to the other side and holds on to the girl with one hand while holding the steel with the other. He immediately pulls the girl and walks to safety.

The video shared on Twitter by Insane Reality Leaks has amassed over a million views and has gone viral on social media. Meanwhile, the brave act of the bystander seems to have impressed netizens. The comments section is flooded with notes of appreciation. On the other hand, several others went on to vent their anger over how the girl’s parents allowed her in the first place and what prompted the girl to walk into a threatening situation.
