Mombasa county Askari’s saved a drowning minor at the Indian Ocean.
The team was on a training mission along the Fort Jesus national museum beach where a group of children had gone to swim.
It is then where one of the minors by the name Albert could not sustain the strong tides and drowned into the Indian Ocean.
The desperate calls and yells attracted the county inspectorate team.
They quickly dived into the Ocean and rescued the boy in despair.
Mombasa County inspectorate director Ibrahim Basafar applauded the team for their humanely action.
The minor was later rushed to the Coast general referral hospital for urgent medical attention where he was later treated and discharged.
Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho applauded his County Askari’s for the humble deed.
“I am extremely moved by such efforts from our inspectorate team,” said Joho.
He however appealed to parents to monitor their children and always ensure minors are accompanied while at the beach.
