This video is from 2014 but must be reposted for its increadable act of heroism.
The police Canadian officer went beyond the call of duty in a desperate attempt to save a man’s life.
A man’s canoe capsized in the icy waters of the St. Lawrence River in Montreal, Canada. He was somehow able to swim to a deck and was helped by people that were standing nearby.
A nurse was among those people and she advised a police officer to use the skin-to-skin technique in order to keep the man warm.
The officer took off his shirt and used his body heat to keep the victim alive. He was taken to a local hospital and was treated for hypothermia.
He is now fine but owes a major “thank you” to officer David Jutras.

Good work and good to know. I had hypothermia once it sucked.
