A group of hikers got quite crafty and resourceful after stumbling upon a tense situation in Golden Ears Provincial Park in British Columbia.
Five Sikh hikers encountered a man stranded on a steep rock face above some intense rapids near a waterfall. The hikers sprung into action and removed their turbans, tied them together, and fashioned a makeshift rope that was approximately 30-feet long. They were able to lower the rope to the stranded hiker and pull him out of harm’s way.
This video depicts part of the rescue. Bear in mind that the rocky face on which the hiker is likely a whole lot steeper than it appears on film.
Sikhism is a religion that originated in India. This monotheistic religion is the fifth-largest in the world with an estimated 25-million Sikhs. Despite the shared use of the turban, the religion is not a branch or off-shoot of Islam
