Varanasi, June 16 (ANI): A police sub-inspector amazed onlookers in the holy city of Varanasi by swimming with his limbs tied.
Suresh Babu Soni emphasized that he developed the art after he was rescued from drowning when he wasn’t familiar with swimming.
“When I was about to drown in 1987 and I did not know how to swim, a man, Hazari Prasahd Nishad saved me and taught me swimming. After I perfected it, I thought that I was about to drown in spite of having my hands and legs, so I thought to develop an art of swimming without the use of my limbs,” said Soni.
Appreciating the confidence of Soni, onlookers were thrilled by the incredible act.
“I appreciate his confidence, how can one swim with his limbs tied? I even screamed on seeing that he was drowning but felt really happy when I saw him coming out,” an onlooker said.
Soni, who enjoys swimming stunts, wants his name to be registered in Limbca book of records. (ANI)
