WASHINGTON, June 21 (UPI) -- A pair of clever raccoons worked together to help a struggling baby climb over a cement barricade.

Koksal Akin shared video of the helpful raccoons as they held each other by the feet to create a chain in order to help the baby over the wall.

"Raccoons use teamwork to help their baby over the fence," he wrote.

The raccoon at the top of the chain can be seen holding the middle raccoon and lowering it to the ground to reach the baby.

After the baby managed to climb up a small portion of the wall, the middle raccoon takes it into its mouth before hoisting it up over the wall.
