Elderly man rescues drowning boy(s)

Eighty-year-old Xu Wifang was resting in his home in Zhutang, China, when he heard someone crying out for help in the nearby river. He rushed outside to see an 8-year-old boy struggling to keep his head above water. Without hesitating, Xu jumped into the river and pulled the boy to safety.

Later, when Xu stopped at the hospital to make sure the boy was okay, he discovered he knew the boy's father. That's because Xu rescued the man from drowning in the same river 30 years ago.  Since moving to a house near the river, he has saved three other people from drowning, and his wife has saved one.
