Today we have more details, as told to UFC.com by Reljic's manager, Zoran Saric:
"Even suffering a severe lower back injury, and without any training and exercise in the past month and a half he risked everything, jumping under cold water and helping save lives," Saric told UFC.com Thursday night. "When I spoke with him earlier today, he said "I wasn't even thinking about my injury or about myself, I just dove into the water and started punching the window; there was only one thing on my mind, to save them."Good thing Reljic has enough punching power to break a window.
In the newspaper article, Reljic is quoted as saying, "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."
I'm not so sure that anyone would have done the same thing in that situation, but it is good to know that if your car crashes into the Adriatic Sea, you've got a good chance of emerging unscathed -- as long as Goran Reljic is around.
