Sept. 19 (UPI) -- A crab with a strong will to live was filmed climbing out of a pot of heating water and switching off the hot plate to save its comrades.

The video, filmed Sept. 5 at a home in Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province, shows the acrobatic crab climbing out of the pot of water as it heats on a hot plate.

The crab swings around to the hot plate's controls and switches off the heat, saving the lives of its three fellow crabs still in the pot.

It was unclear whether the crab's heroism managed to earn it and the other three crustaceans a permanent stay of execution.
