Krzysztof Chomicz, a Polish photographer was sent in to photograph this hellish terrain in Poland, but when he got there he saw something that made him forget about his assignment altogether. In the thick mud in the distance he saw something moving, a young eagle must have misjudged his landing, got stuck and started sinking.
After contacting the local fire fighters and wildlife conservationists, he realized there was no other option than attempt to rescue the bird himself. His only lifeline was a rope to the dry land as he slowly inched his way to the exhausted eagle. The entire operation was filmed by a drone and it’s the most breath-taking video you’ll ever see.
