People say the lad deserves a medal
Many have expressed awe at his calmness and bravery exhibited in the video and called that he be given a medal of honour.

"He deserves to be called a hero…and given a medal."

"Just incredible!...."being at the right place at the right time"....or....Allah's intervention?....I love the hero's comments. Great video !!"
