British diplomat praised as hero after dramatic rescue of drowning woman in China

영국인 diplomat could be seen on a dramatic TikTok video saving a woman from drowning in a 중국말 river on Saturday morning.

스티븐 엘리슨, the consul-general in Chongqing, jumped into the river to rescue the 24-year-old college student, who slipped into the water and lost consciousness, BBC reported.

“She was unconscious, she was not breathing, and for a short time. We feared the worst,” Ellison, 61, told the outlet.

“But as we got back to the side, she started breathing again.”

Tiktok video of the rescue was reposted to Twitter by the British Embassy in Beijing’s account.

“We are all immensely proud of our Chongqing Consul General, 스티븐 엘리슨, who dived into a river on Saturday to rescue a drowning student and swim her to safety,” the British government said in the tweet.

Footage shows the woman slip off a rock and into the water, emerging face down after passing under a footbridge.

Ellison can be seen taking off his shoes, jumping in, and leading the woman to safety with an inflatable life ring that was tossed into the water.
