Baby animals are notorious for getting themselves into predicaments that their parents can’t always get them out of. The black swan signets in this video had only spent only a few days out of their eggs when they found themselves trapped in hole behind a river weir. The cascading water might not look very perilous to the human eye, but to those baby swans, it was as perilous as Niagara Falls.

Lucky for them, the park’s very own waterfowl warden (yes, that’s his job) hiked up his waterproof trousers, stepped into his galoshes, and prepared himself for an epic rescue, wielding a push-broom and a plastic bucket like a knight with a sword and shield. According to SWNS Animals, “scores of people stopped to watch [the rescue],” but we all know that this hero needs no audience to do what’s right. After securing the signets in his trusty yellow bucket, the waterfowl warden reunited them with their concerned parents.

Don’t we all love a happy ending?
