The group of five was walking in the direction of the waterfall when they saw that the hikers were stranded on a steep rocky ledge. Kuljinder a little, one of the Sikh men who saved them, told NBC there was no cell phone service in the area until call emergency services.

After walking for 10 minutes trying to find help, the group thought of the idea of tying their coats and turbans together. They made a makeshift rope about 10 meters long and pulled the men until safety. The action has been taken on video and was widely shared on social media.
The walkers were in Golden Ears Provincial Park, one of the largest parks in British Colombia with extensive paths die lead to waterfalls, earlier this month. The two men who have been rescued have not been identified.
This is not the first time Sikh men have used their turbans to save lives, although the headgear over to be general nothing but removed in private, away from the public.
In 2020, a community of older Sikh men goods on their daily walk when they heard the screams of two girls who fell in a frozen pond in northeast Calgary. They came quickly in action by taking off their turbans and creating a makeshift rope, similar met the situation in the Golden Ears Provincial Park.
In 2016, Sarwan Singh used his turban to kill himself by drowning dog out of water.
‘They thought I disrespected my faith’ Sarwan told Yahoo news. “But what was important at the time was to save the animal’s life.”
