Kayakers spot exhausted animal in overgrown river—then they decide to take action immediately

These kayakers were paddling across the River Thames near Oxford, England, one October afternoon when they came across a sheep drowning right before their eyes.

Struggling to keep its head above the freezing waters, the fluffy animal was clearly exhausted and would soon drown or die of hypothermia after being in the river for hours.

The couple knew they had to act fast.

Nudging it with their paddles and pushing reeds out of the way, they managed to drag the poor animal onto the shore.

Once on dry land, the sheep was unable to stand; and, with no farmer or farmhouse in sight, the only thing they could do was place the animal on the bank in the sun to warm up, giving it another chance to live.
