A man named Nick Allen decided to go for a jog during a warm summer afternoon and as he was getting close to ending his jog, he decided to run next to the train tracks. Good thing he made this decision because he found a small fella who was stuck behind the train tracks and desperately needed a little bit of help.

Nick wanted to run alone and what better place to do that other than by the train tracks? However, someone who was stuck in between the tracks was waiting for Nick.
17. Small Squirrel
As Nick was jogging, he spotted a small animal that was struggling to climb from between the tracks. Without giving it any second thought, Nick decided to stop jogging and to help out.
16. The Squirrel is Stuck
The small animal that Nick was trying to save was a small squirrel. The little fella was probably trying to explore the train tracks and since it's so small, it couldn't get out anymore.
15. Helping Out
Nick knew that he had to try and help the squirrel get out. Otherwise, the train would come and the squirrel's chances of making it out are quite slim.
14. Scaring the Squirrel
The problem here is that Nick didn't know how to pick up the squirrel. The little animal would probably get scared if he tried to grab it in the palm of his hands and he needed to come up with a different solution.
13. Difficult Mission
Nick didn't expect this at first, but rescuing the small squirrel was proving to be quite a difficult task. He needed to find a way to pick up the small animal and he needed to do it fast.

As Nick was trying to come up with ways to pick up the squirrel, the small animal started running towards his foot. Something special was going to happen.
9. Climbing The Leg
The squirrel probably realized that Nick is there to help and it started climbing his leg. Can you believe that?
8. The Mission Is Not Over
Even though the squirrel was the one to "reach out" to Nick, the man's mission was not over yet. He still needed to help the squirrel get out and take it to a safe place.
7. Careful Steps
The man didn't want to scare away or shake the squirrel that was attached to his leg and he made slow and small steps towards safety.
6. Saying Goodbye
After Nick reached a safe spot, the squirrel didn't just run away. It was looking at Nick as if to say goodbye and thank you for saving its life. Isn't that amazing?
5. Disney Princess
