One Thai fisherman performed an incredible act, saving a couple of tourists who were stuck in mud.

The elderly couple ran into trouble while bird watching in the Krabi river in Southern Thailand, when they became stuck in waist high mud.

That’s when Chat Ubonchinda saw they were in trouble, and left his boat to try and rescue them.

He initially tried to lift their photography equipment higher, pulling them free with his hands.

When that failed, he lay down and pulled the Norwegian couple against his body, and got them to safety, before returning to his boat.

The video footage of the incident has been uploaded to Facebook and seen over two million times, but despite the couple trying to get in touch with Chat, he said he didn’t want any publicity or a reward for his actions.

What a hero.
