Andhra Pradesh

The Good India story of a braveheart fire officer

The fire service personnel in Anakapalle in Visakhapatnam district of Andhra Pradesh showed they are a daredevil lot. Especially fire officer M Ganesh who tied himself with a rope to lower himself to the balcony of a 3rd floor apartment in Chauthi Vidhi area of Anakapalle town at around 1 pm on Friday.

Why did he do that? Because a 14 months old baby, Mahadev, was stuck inside the house, having bolted the washroom from the outside while his mother was inside.

From a small opening Ganesh managed to get inside the apartment. Breaking the front door was not an option, the fire station officers told me because the door was very heavy and locked from inside. 

The wailing baby was relieved to be rescued and so were his parents.
