David's Story

David comes from Bosnia and Herzegovina and is a very courageous boy. He likes mountaineering, swimming and other outdoor activities. One day, an 11-year old girl was swimming in the river when she got caught in a whirlpool. Without hesitation, David jumped into the water and swam with all his strength to save the girl’s life. He held her with one arm, and with the other he swam back to river bank. His act of courage became widely known, and one of the national newspapers even named him personality of the year.
