When a little boy accidentally dropped his sandal into a muddy ravine, it was returned by none other than a thoughtful duck.
The surprising incident was captured on camera by Myla Aguila as she was walking through her home in the Sitio Madaguldol region of the Philippines earlier this week.
Based on the video that Aguila later uploaded to Facebook, the boy can be seen sitting at the top of a small trench with his flip-flop sitting several feet below him. Though he probably could have retrieved the sandal himself, a random duck took it upon itself to head down the dirt slope in order to fetch the sandal.
The bird can be seen accidentally dropping the sandal into the ravine several times, but it never failed to scuttle back into the trench to retrieve it once more.
Finally after a few failed attempts, the boy manages to take his lost shoe from the bird’s beak, place it back onto his foot, and scurry away from the ravine.
The duck, meanwhile, seems unfazed by its good deed as onlookers cheer from the sidelines.
“I was dumbfounded,” Aguila wrote in a translated Facebook comment. “The duck is kind. He really helped, even though he doesn’t know the child.”
