The incredible picture captured the tight embrace between two climbers after the man saved a woman from falling off a 200-ft mountain in Queen Creek, Arizona, the United States.
The near-death moment took place when a female climber screamed and fell off the edge. Fellow hikers in a distance then watched in amazement that a man reached out and grabbed her ankles and pulled her back to safety.
The pair shared an intense embrace after the heart-wrenching moment, which was captured by fellow hiker Marco Malimban at the top of Camelback Mountain. Malimban felt it’s better to leave them alone so soon after the event and said he would try to track down the two hikers.
