Eom Joo-hwan (47) of the Yeongwol Fire Department, who was exercising on a nearby trail, found Group A struggling in the water.
As soon as he saw his child, he immediately thought of his 7-year-old son and jumped straight into the water without hesitation.

Group A and group A’s guardians are known to have repeatedly said “thank you” to the fire department and the police.
