A group of ice skaters from Sweden were making their way across a frozen lake when they saw a large animal that had fallen through the ice.
At first they weren’t sure what they could do to help.
Soon, the group is seen on video hacking away at the ice with a hatchet. 30 minutes later, a path through the ice to the shore has been created for the creature.
Unfortunately, the moose then appears to grow weary and stops struggling—but the skaters don’t give up and encourage the animal to escape.
Watch the incredible footage above!
