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.
