Watch until the end. It's 100% worth it.

Okay, first of all, who knew that squirrels could swim? I mean, I guess I never really thought about it, but other than those water skiing squirrels, I don't think that I've ever seen a squirrel in water.

Second, bless this woman for trying to help it, but she really should have seen this end result coming.

In the description on YouTube, the person filming the video says that her daughter (the rescuer) is an animal lover and really just wanted to help the squirrel out ("I'm saving you! I'm saving you! I'm saving you!"). The squirrel, as you can see, didn't appreciate the helping hand.

What you don't see in this video is the second attempt where she was able to successfully get the little guy out. According to the video's description, she came away with just a scratch on her arm (the rescuer, not the squirrel.)
