A man pulls over and saves a wild rabbit from the flames on Highway 1 in La Conchita as the Thomas fire heads towards Santa Barbara County.
A Good Samaritan stopped his car along Highway 1 near La Conchita, California after spotting the rabbit alongside the roadway. He tried to grab it, but the rabbit hopped away toward the fire. Apparently, the rabbit decided the human was the lesser of two evils, and the rabbit returned toward the human, but still trying to evade captured.
The man was able to capture the rabbit and bring the rabbit to safety.
Social media commenters reacted to the video. Some called the man a hero, and some called him an idiot for risking his life for a rabbit.
A video camera reporter from RMG News, based in Los Angeles, was covering the raging wildfires in California, and happened to capture the unusually selfless act. Usually RMG is covering the routine, but startling breaking news that occurs in city life in the Los Angeles area. RMG News is self-described on its YouTube channel as a news video supplier that covers the “mean streets of one of the largest and most dangerous cities in the world … we capture the unimaginable scenes left behind by gang violence, drug warfare and inner city life.”
VIEWER DISCRETION: RMG News, based in Los Angeles, is a supplier of breaking news video to local and mainstream media outlets, and produced this promotional video in November 2017.
