"Being a Sikh myself, I know what type of respect the turban has. People just don't take it off - people die over it. I saw him (Singh) with no head covering and thought, 'That's strange'. But then I saw one hand was underneath the boy's head supporting it and his siropao (turban) was stopping the bleeding," he said.
Although removing the turban is rare, Singh said the religious rules did not restrict such an action in an emergency, stuff.co.nz reported.
Dhillon posted a photo of Singh and other people helping the injured child on Facebook and it has gone viral since then. The child is now in stable condition and police have launched an investigation into the accident.
