A 27 year old construction worker from Tetovo rescued an 81 year old man from the Vardar river in Skopje.

The rescue happened on Friday in the early afternoon, in the Aerodrom part of the city. The worker was hired at the site of a new hotel when he noticed the man struggling in the river. He jumped in and helped the man to the shore.

The old man’s family says that he has health issues and wandered from his home. The man is now well and is cared at home.
