Orangutan Reaches Out Hand To Rescue Man Stuck In A River In Asia (Photos) by Explorers(m): 1:25pm On Feb 10
This is the heartwarming moment an orangutan tries to assist a man stuck in a river by offering its outstretched arm.

The great ape, who lives in a protected conservation forest area in Borneo, was seen leaning forward and lending a helping hand to the man who had been in the muddy river.

The striking images were taken by amateur photographer Anil Prabhakar, from Indonesia, who had been on a safari with his friends when he spotted the touching scene.

In reply Jesus said: “A man was stuck in a river".

"A photographer stood there taking photos while an orangutan saved the man".

“Which of these do you think was a neighbor to the man stuck in a river?”

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Next time you hear someone claim humans share ancestry with orangutans you can now tell them not to insult the orangutans.

Today, animals are becoming humans while human are becoming animals thanks to iPhone and Android.

In tough situations, animals lend helping hands while humans take pictures, that is the new world order, folks.

If you look at it very well and you look at the angle of the picture taken, you will know that the person taking the picture is most likely also on the river.

He wasn't stuck on the river though, He was cleaning up the place to avoid snakes.

But I think the orangutan thought he was stuck and offered to help. In this same documentary the Orangutan did learn alot of things from humans including paddling a boat, storage of foods and they learnt it only by watching humans do it. People don't know this but Apes are smart especially chimpanzees.

Awwwwwww. kiss kiss kiss

This is so touching and heartwarming at the same time.

This Orangutan deserves more care and happiness in life than some idiots that hatred and evil towards their fellow humans reign in their hearts 24/7.

They will rather watch the gentleman sink and die!


Some animals are 100% better than some foolish, evil humans that hate and maim for fun and rather drag other people into mud!

Mr Orangutan, we Looovve you!!! kiss kiss kiss

Budaatum and other sane Nairalanders,
Can you just see this tin reply to Budaatum's lovely post above!?
(A contention for post of the year already! wink)
Someone that hatred has filled his heart all because other people refused to support the criminals they support.
8'O Clock is permanent on their wall clock 24/7.
