A Sikh man in India has been hailed as a hero after saving a dog from drowning by using his turban.

He stopped his car to check and saw a dog struggling in the water." I was shocked to see that there was a dog drowning but no was actually helping,"he was quoted in the report as saying.

Singh admitted that he could not swim well enough to save the dog, so he figured using his turban to reach for it instead.
