Thomas Paterson, a 22-year-old river boarder, was traveling down stream on his board in Ottawa, Canada, when he spotted a cute furry squirrel stranded in the middle of the rapids. It’s unknown how the squirrel founds its way to the middle of the river, Paterson, realizing the poor creature was trapped, decided to comfort the animal, gain its trust and try and return it safely to the shore.

Of course there is a happy ending. So watch!

Happy Hump Day!
