While sailing on Somerset Reservoir in Vermont with his son, a man spotted a young squirrel trying to swim across the lake. The distance from one side to the other was about 3/4 of a mile and the squirrel was right in the middle of the lake. After trying to get him to climb aboard without success, the man decided to jump into the water to save the little guy.
I just love this video! It’s so heartwarming to see people helping even the smallest of creatures.
