A man dove into a pit of mud for one heroic reason: to rescue a female impala that had become trapped in the muck.
The impala, which had apparently fallen into the mud at the Zimbabwe National Park, had become exhausted from unsuccessfully trying to escape. Thankfully, he was spotted by the right man to help.
Before plunging into the pit, the man tied a safety rope around his waist and crawled towards the frightened animal.
Upon reaching the impala, he tied the rope around its legs and told his friends to pull the two of them to safety.
While the impala was initially too exhausted to move, they poured some bottled water into her mouth. She then leaped to her feet and ran back towards her pack.
