faith in humanity restored

You can feel this man's stress as he saves a rabbit from a California wildfire

Even in the midst of Southern California's devastating wildfires, there's a little bit of humanity left.

Motorists on California's Highway 1 recorded a video of a man who pulled over, hopped out of his car, and raced toward the burning brush on the side of road. His dangerous mission? Saving a rabbit that ran into the fire.

The unidentified man jumped around anxiously and threw out his arms, trying to coax the animal out. When it finally did emerge, he scooped the terrified rabbit up in his arms and carried it to safety.

Uncontrollable wildfires have spread across Southern California in the past week, leaving the Los Angeles hills looking like something out of the apocalypse. As of Wednesday night, the fires are only 5 percent contained.
