Good News: Paramedic rescues baby squirrel, the two become 'friends'

LANCASTER COUNTY, SC (WBTV) - It's Jesse Wolfram's job to save lives. The Charlotte MEDIC employee is a paramedic and recently found himself attempting to save a life that wasn't human.

"It had been outside in the rain for a long time and we weren't sure it was going to make it," Wolfram said.

A friend had discovered the orphaned squirrel near death and asked Wolfram to take care of it.

Wolfram attempted to send the squirrel to a licensed wildlife rehab, but he had no luck finding someone near his home in Lancaster County, SC.

Since it isn't illegal to keep a squirrel in your home in his state, he took to the task of nursing the animal back to health, himself.

But a funny thing happened, the two seemed to become friends.

Check out the video for an adorable look at how it happened.
