TERRIBLE: 20-Year-Old Nigerian Boy Drowns After Jumping Into River Thames To Rescue A Woman Who Fell From London Bridge

20-year-old Folajimi Olubunmi-Adewole has died after jumping into the River Thames in a bid to help a woman who fell off London Bridge, in United Kingdom.

The Sun UK reports that Adewole saw the woman fall into the river and jumped in the water along with another man just after midnight on Saturday, April 25.

Emergency services, including the coastguard and police marine units, were called to the scene to help all three people who were in the water.

They rescued the woman and one of the men who jumped into the river to help her, but were unable to locate the other. His body was tragically found six hours later.

Jimi was on his way home from work at fine dining restaurant The Cinnamon Club in Westminster when he spotted the woman on the bridge. After seeing her fall into the water he dived in to try and save her, along with his colleague.

Describing what happened, his dad, Michael Adewole, 63, said, “Him and his friend were coming from work together, and they called the police, and saw what was happening. They wanted to help and tried to speak to her but wanted to leave it to the police.

He is a hero, and always will be, I can’t bring him back but I want him to be remembered forever for what he did, it was just like him to want to always try and help others.

He would help anyone that needed it. I am proud of my son, he is amazing, but as a family we are devastated. We are just glad the woman is alive too.”
