Men save Orangutan Drowning In Rapids

An orangutan, caught in the fast moving rapids of Lesan river in Borneo, wouldn’t have survived without the help of nearby men.

The footage was posted by the Centre For Orangutan Protection.

“Orangutans do like water, but they do not swim. We found this poor orangutan trapped in swift water of Lesan river, just below the Gorilla Waterfront. If we’re late, maybe orangutan is already dead.”
