An Indian-origin Birmingham man, who risked his life to help a fatally injured young boy in the 2017 Barcelona terror attack, has been selected for this year`s `Pride of Birmingham` award. Harry Athwal, a project manager from Great Barr area of north-west Birmingham, was in Spain on holiday with a group of friends and family, including his sister Kinde Dehr, when a terrorist drove a van into pedestrians on Barcelona`s famous Las Ramblas tourist spot, killing 13 people and injuring hundreds. He ran to help seven-year-old Julian Alessandro Cadman, who was among those hit, and defied police orders to evacuate the area to keep holding on to him until the emergency services arrived. The boy, who had dual British and Australian nationality, died on the spot but his family have since thanked Athwal for being there for him.Athwal said being a Sikh, it is his duty to go and help somebody who is hurt or who is being bullied. The 45-year-old has since been in touch with the boy`s grandparents, Noreen and Tony Cadman, who have thanked him for his heroic actions.
