Sikh men who used turbans to rescue hiker from waterfall honored by RCMP

BRITISH COLUMBIA: Five young Sikh men used their turbans to rescue two hikers who had fallen into a waterfall pool at Golden Ears Provincial Park in Canada were honoured by Ridge Meadows RCMP.

On Oct. 11, the five men worked together to save two other young men in their 20s.

“The two men were in danger of drowning,” Superintendent Wendy Mehat with Ridge Meadows RCMP said Tuesday.

The five young men, Gagandeep Singh, Gurpreet Singh, Arvindjeet Singh, Kulinder Singh, and Ajay Kumar, were presented with Community Leader Awards in recognition of their bravery and heroic actions.

Supt. Mehat said it should also be noted that the men used their turbans, a Sikh religious symbol, to perform the rescue.

“Thank you for that,” she said to the men.
