It was reported that Raaz was playing near the Kurumberi Thazha canal when the horrible incident happened.
Latheef saw the 3-year-old falling into the canal and drowning, so he just jumped right away without thinking twice.
Latheef was playing around the canal with his cousin when the unfortunate incident happened.
Latheef, a 7-year-old boy who is in grade 2, was interview by local news agencies.

Raaz was playing as his mother was washing clothes on the canal side. When she went to hang the wet clothes, the child slipped and fell into the water.
The father of Latheef said that they were not worried about his son’s life because they know he is capable of handling himself.
They said that they were happy that he managed to save a life.
