Russians Form Human Chain to Save Drowning Woman’s Life

Around 30 Russians formed a human chain to save a woman's life in the city of Perm last week.

Onlookers who saw the woman drowning in the river held hands and managed to pull her from the water.

The woman was then brought to doctors for treatment.

The video quickly went viral on Russian social media. Anything is possible with teamwork.
