Signet Rescue and Very Protective Male Swan

Everyone knows you never go near a signet, not when their parents are around. You do at great risk to yourself as they are fiercely protective, as parents should be. However, this Wildlife Aid worker had no choice when the signet had put himself in real danger, so the rescue just had to go for it.

Rescuing Ducklings out of a Drain

This man in New Zealand fishes these ducklings out of a drain. The mother hovers frantically nearby as her entire brood is trapped under the drain grate and as soon as they are all rescued they dutifully fall into line behind her and waddle off into the bushes. Hero of the day.

Truck Driver Drags People from Burning Car

When truck driver David Fredericksen’s saw a horrific car crash and burst into flames he barely hesitated in seeing what he could do, even though the situation looked very bleak. Other people, seeing the call to action, alighted their vehicles and rushed to lend a hand. They found a grandmother and her 1 year old grand daughter trapped inside the burning car. They managed to free both of them and get them to safety before the car finally exploded. There were no fatalities. Definitely Hero of the Day.

You may also notice that 14 seconds after the crash the van who was directly behind the crash decided he couldn’t hang around to see if he could help save a life or assist traffic police in their subsequent investigation and just pulled up around the burning car and buggered off. Classy.
