    Unfortunate events may happen to everyone from time, and those who receive a helping hand are truly lucky. Animals also find themselves in dangerous situations at times, as a benevolent family demonstrated when rescuing a bear in a compromising situation.

    Video courtesy of the Hurt family, which was shared on Twitter by local news outlet WMTV NBC 15 in Madison, Wisconsin, captures Brian, Tricia, and Brady Hurt acting quickly to save a baby bear who was swimming in the water while its head was trapped inside a plastic container.

    Video shows the family repeatedly attempting to get close enough to the juvenile bear so they could remove the jar, which was slowly beginning to fill up with water as it swam. 

    After multiple maneuvers, they were finally able to remove the container with the relieved bear seen swimming back to the shore. “Swim happy,” one of the rescuers says.
