Rajahmundry: A home guard showed exemplary courage and dedication by putting his life at risk and rescuing 11 persons who were trapped inside a ceramic factory at Ramavaram in Jaggampeta mandal of East Godavari district on Wednesday. Arjun, who works as driver of highway patrol team’s road safety vehicle, immediately rushed to the spot after coming to know of their plight. With the highway already submerged and the ceramic factory located about 300 metres from the road, Arjun jumped into the swirling waters and managed to reach the factory. He connected all 11 people, which also included some women, with sticks and led them to safety. —Samson Raj
