Trapped on a rock amid fast-moving rapids, the squirrel had no idea what to do and would almost certainly have drowned. But that’s when a hero came over for the dramatic rescue.
Fortunately, the scene was captured on camera and the video quickly went viral, attracting more than 650,000 views since being published three weeks ago by Caters TV. The authors give us these details:
Thomas Paterson, 22, was traveling down stream on his board in Ottawa, Canada, when he spotted the furry animal stranded on a rock.
Realising the distressed critter had become trapped, kind-hearted Thomas decided to comfort the animal, gain its trust and try and return it safely to the shore.
Great work, Thomas! And it’s been widely appreciated by the viewers. Some have speculated that the squirrel would have got away just fine because “how do you think he got to that rock in the first place?”
A fair point, but from my point of view, the rodent looked doomed. Here is the video, judge for yourself:
1. Wary of Paterson, the frightened squirrel made an ill-advised leap to safety.
2. Paterson transported the rodent to the river bank.
3. Paterson deposited the drenched squirrel safely on shore.
