Many people say that friends are one’s second family and that no matter if relatives are there are not, friends remain forever! The story below truly makes this statement true!
On September 4, 2010, Om Prakash was going to school along with other students in a Maruti van. But all of a sudden, the van caught fire because of a short circuit in the gas kit.
The driver immediately opened his door and fled. But not Om Prakash.
He broke open the van door and pulled out several of his friends alive out of the burning van, caring little about his own safety. He saved eight children.
He received burn injuries on his face, back and arms, and lost one year of school. But ask him would he put his life in danger once again if caught in a similar situation? ‘Everytime,’ Om Prakash says.
