His brother Sadiq, who was using a hose to spray water onto the terrace, was seen springing into action the moment he realised what was happening. Sadiq threw the hose away and stretched his arms out to break his brother’s fall.

The video shows both of them tumbling to the ground by the force of the impact. While the older brother gets up almost immediately, the younger one was seen clutching his upper arm, which was apparently hurt in the incident.
