Man rescues impala from the mud in South African National Park

This is the moment a kind-hearted man rescued an impala which was stuck in the mud. The man noticed the impala was unable to stand and follow its herd which moved on in Kruger national park in South Africa. He then drives up to the wild animal and pulls it out of the water before leaving it to return to its travels.

 

 

 

 

The helpless impala had desperately tried to get out of the water but continued to fall in. Until the man drove over, got out of his car, took his shoes and socks off in front of the impala who closely watched him. He crouched down and swiftly pulled the impala out by its antlers.
