Desperately trying to escape the floodwaters in Ireland, this donkey finds himself alone, powerless, and in need of help. With no way to escape the current situation that he is in, he continues to stand with the high flood waters encompassing his whole body. Hours later, an animal rescue group becomes aware of this defenseless animal and immediately begins searching for anyone who can provide assistance.
Local residents bring a boat and a few volunteers to help with the rescue. Rowing out into the water toward the donkey, with only a rope and life preserver, they lasso the donkey and begin pulling him toward higher ground. Once on shore, the Donkey does not waste any time and flashes everyone the biggest smile to show his appreciation for the incredible measures taken to save his life.
Everyone there to witness the smile burst into laughter and give Mike, the donkey, a sweet kiss on the forehead. It's a moment that the donkey and rescuers will never forget! As Anthony J. D’Angelo states, “Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart."
