A baby squirrel who was caught in a tree, hanging by a thorn, was facing a certain death. Then, good Samaritans from Kruger Sightings came along to save the day and rescue the baby squirrel.

The people were in the Timbavati Picnic Site in the Kruger National Park in South Africa when Elize Olivier heard an unusual bird call. While looking for the bird, she realized the sound was actually coming from a baby squirrel hanging from a tree as he was caught in a thorn. Watch the video as they manage to climb on top of a car and get the baby down to safety.

Later, the squirrel, who is named Thorn, is shown in the video being fed and cared for. This little animal would have surely died without the intervention, and Kruger Sightings reports that Thorn is now doing well in the Hands of Elize and Anton Olivier in Letaba.
