A crash that almost killed two young men on the 15th of October at around 3am could have had disastrous consequences when the two young men, both from Privlaka, spun and crashed into the sea.
Thankfully both men survived, due to the brave actions of Goran Reljic, the Croatian ultimate fighter, who resides in the immediate vicinity of the town in question.
When he heard the crash, Goran jumped out of bed, still in his underwear and jumped into the sea.
He swam to the car, proceeded to break the windshield of the vehicle and pull both men to land. Several eye witness accounts confirm the story and so does Goran himself who doesn’t want any praise or recognition for the good deed.
“The only satisfaction I get is that both young men are alive and healthy, I don’t need any praise, I simply did what anyone one would have done in that situation” said Reljic
Reljic was scheduled to fight on the 25th October however a back injury forced him out of his fight with Brazilian Thales Leites. Even with his back injury Raljic did not hesitate to help and rescue the two young men from the sinking car.
Reljic defeated Wilson Gouveia at UFC 84 by TKO in round 2 back in May of this year.
