An elderly woman in Berlin, Germany, saved a swan on a bridge - with her bare hands.
On Monday, Marcy Mendelson, a documentary filmmaker and fine art photographer, took to social media to post the video of the act of courage from the woman who got the swan back to where it needed to be.
In the video, you see someone walking along the Admiral Brücke bridge when an older woman walks up beside the swan, that seems a bit lost.
Then in an instant, the older woman gabs at the swan’s wings and a leg to hold it steady, as it seemed taken aback by the interaction.
Swans are reportedly dangerous birds that can injure people. According to the Bird Watching United States of America website, swans might become aggressive if another animal or human comes near their nest.
They might hiss and flap their wings repeatedly when it happens.
The website also notes that the swans are defensive more than aggressive and will attack if they feel that something threatens their young or nesting area.
