On this edition of Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from India where Bishnu Shrestha, a retired Gurkha soldier, was travelling on a train that was taken over by forty bandits. The criminals proceeded to rob the passengers, but when they began stripping an 18-year-old girl with the intent of raping her in front of her parents, Shrestha did not stand by. Armed with his Kukri blade, he saved the girl, killed three of the bandits, wounded another eight, and drove off the other twenty-nine. The Indian Government is now honoring him for his extraordinary valor in protecting others. Originally aired 1/27/2011.
