You don't hear a lot of good stories coming out of Bangladesh, but that didn't stop a young man from putting his life in danger and his country on the map with a story that will warm your heart.

From the Daily Mail,

The incident took place in Noakhali, Bangladesh, when the young fawn became separated from its family during torrential rain and fast-rising floods.

Wildlife photographer Hasibul Wahab captured the brave act while visiting on a photography trip.

He said the Noakhali locals lose a lot of deer during the rainy season and that they have to do all they can to protect them.
