One one hand where the women of India are fighting hard for Olympics wins in Rio, Babloo Martin, a state level cricket and football player from Madhya Pradesh died while attempting to rescue a 12-year-old girl from being crushed by a collapsing building on Saturday.
The 42-year-old, brave and well known local figure rushed to rescue Prabha, the daughter of the local watchman as stated by the eyewitnesses.
Efforts were made to rescue him out of the rubble alive, but he couldn’t bear the fatal injuries and died. The same incident, caused by heavy rainfall claimed four more injuries and another death. The building had been declared “dilapidated and dangerous” by a local civic body, but families refused to vacate.
