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!

    Poor squirrel! I would have totally done the same thing and tried to rescue the squirrel. I wonder how he ended up way out there in the middle of the river. Now let’s hope the squirrel won’t do that again.

    I love seeing people try and rescue these little animals. I have such a soft spot in my heart for all types of animals too. I’m glad this little guy got rescued.

      I was wondering the same thing. It’s amazing what these little creatures can get themselves into. I’m so glad that he got rescued, I don’t think that he would have made it out otherwise.

    Aw, poor little squirrel. I really thought it was a goner when it fell into the water. I’m glad that river boarder was so persistent. He certainly did his good deed for the day.
