Three sailors of the Indian Navy saved a man from drowning in the Arabian Sea near Mumbai’s Marine Drive on Sunday.

The sailors first noticed people gathered at a spot near the Marine Drive on September 9. Upon seeing a man drowning in the sea, the sailors immediately jumped into the waters and pulled him out, a Navy release said.

The man was administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and after he regained consciousness, the sailors handed him over to the local police, the release added.

The Navy spokesperson also shared details about the brave sailors earlier today.

“3 young sailors of Indian Navy – Akash (Ship’s Diver), Dhananjay (Seaman – good swimmer) and Vishwakarma (Marine Commando) rescue a man who had fallen into the sea off Marine Drive on the night of September 9. Their selfless & prompt act of bravery is in keeping with the finest traditions,” the spokesperson tweeted.

In a similar incident, four clean-up marshals successfully rescued a woman from drowning in the sea near Bandra Fort at Bandstand on August 30.

When the team of clean-up marshals from BMC’s H-West ward saw the woman struggling to cope with the strong current, they immediately rushed to her aid and brought her back to safety.
