A selfless decision to break religious protocol earns man praise from around the world.

Harman Singh was in the right place at the right time to help save a 5-year-old child's life. After being struck by a car, the boy was bleeding from his head. While many came to the boy's aid, it was Singh who removed his turban to help stop the bleeding.

Singh, a 22-year-old from India studying in New Zealand, is a Sikh. Having your head covered in public is a very strict rule. However, with a young boy in need of help and the child's mother standing by and watching, Singh knew he had to do something, even if it meant breaking religious protocol.
