As the Indian state of West Bengal struggles to limp back to normalcy following the devastating aftermath of the super cyclone Amphan, a viral video of two people rescuing a stray dog in a flooded area in the state's capital Kolkata has emerged on Twitter.
In the video, two young men can be seen carefully taking the visibly scared dog trapped on a cornice of a house to safety. One of the guys is seen wading in the inundated street with the animal in his arms.
Twitter users took no time to thank the men for the act.
A big thank you to these two guys, whoever they are. 🙏— B I N O Y 🏎 (@ThisisBinoy) May 23, 2020
