It is often said that mothers who are experiencing an incredible amount of stress can achieve feats that they would not be able to accomplish under normal circumstances. We have all heard the stories about mothers running into burning buildings and rescuing their children from the flames. Or perhaps you are familiar with the stories of mothers who summoned the strength to pick up an automobile and save a child who is trapped underneath.
No matter how you slice it, mothers are capable of great feats and this is a trait that extends to the animal kingdom, as well. The baby in this video had a terrible accident, one that could have been fatal had its mother not been on the scene, ready to spring into action and save her child from a watery grave.
As you can see, this baby polar bear was playing by the water. Mothers everywhere are already shaking their heads, since they have probably warned their little ones about the exact same thing already. Something about a body of water attracts little ones, especially those who are prone to mischief.
This baby polar bear was blissfully unaware of the dangers of playing so close to the water and before you know it, the poor little fella had managed to fall in. While polar bears are typically very capable swimmers, this little guy definitely didn’t have his sea legs under him just yet.
