An elderly man jumped into a lake to rescue a drowning boy in southwest China. The heroic video, filmed in the city of Liupanshui in Guizhou Province on June 27, shows an 81-year-old man named Kong Xiangxing running to jump into a lake to save a 4-year-old drowning, followed by a young man named Zhu Longfei.
