A man fishing in Nanoose Bay near Vancouver Island happened upon a juvenile bald eagle floundering in the water.
He recorded video of the amazing rescue during which the bird tries to swim toward the boat.
Then, you can hear the fisherman thinking aloud about what to do next.
Because the man did all the right things, the malnourished eagle is now in the capable hands of the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society.
