So often we hear stories in Florida about how strong the current can be and how powerful the waves are. A pigeon off the coast of Venice, FL experienced this first hand when the poor fella was swept out to sea in a wave as Subtropical Storm Alberto made it's way to the Gulf. Luckily for the pigeon's sake, a good Samaritan was there to help!
A Florida native was out surfing when he saw the bird struggling. Immediately he paddled over to the drowning pigeon and allowed him to climb up on the front of the surfboard to safety. A beach goer and her children were able to witness the recovery and recorded it for the local news station.
The bystander shared that this was incredible to watch and she is very grateful her children were there to also witness the kindness. How many people do you know who would go out of their way for a pigeon?
