Orangutan Saves a Baby Bird from Drowning

Astonishing moment captured on video by a visitor at a zoo
NEW YORK An incredible video shot by a visitor to a zoo has taken YouTube by storm. The dramatic footage shows an orangutan appearing to kiss life into its new friend, after finding it floundering in the water, abandoned by its mother.
The ape uses a leaf as a paddle, bringing the duckling closer before scooping it up in its grips to the shock of the gasping crowd.
Video stills capturing the dramatic moment show the duckling latching on to the leaf, offered by its new ape friend
The ape lays the chick back down in the grass and pets its new friend
It was not known at press time if zoo keepers managed to nurse the duckling to safety.
