A Chinese man has rescued a seven-year-old boy from a pond – 20 years after rescuing the boy’s father from the same place.

Wang Weiqing, 58, of Beicheng village, Danyang city, is being hailed as a hero, reports the Yangtse Evening News.

“I was walking along the pool with my own grandson, then spotted a boy struggling in the water,” he said.

When the grandfather of the rescued boy arrived, he was amazed to see the rescuer was the same man who saved his son, the boy’s father, from the same pool 20 years ago.

“I can hardly believe it, and don’t know how to express my gratitude,” said the grandfather, Wang Huajian.

The grandfather later made a silk banner to thank Wang for saving two generations of his family. – ananova
