A young man has drowned after heroically diving into a river to save his girlfriend’s three-year-old son who had fallen into the water.

Joshua Traylor, a 24-year-old man has drowned after heroically diving into a river to save his girlfriend’s three-year-old son who had fallen into the water.
According to Daily Mail UK, Joshua Traylor, 24, was feeding nearby ducks with his girlfriend and her young son on a boardwalk near the Clinton River in Mount Clemens, Michigan, when the boy slipped and fell in.
Traylor – despite being unable to swim – immediately threw himself into the river shortly before 5pm on Sunday, as a nearby fisherman also dived into the water and was able to get the toddler back to safety.
