May 22 (UPI) -- The crew of a ferry traveling across a river in Vietnam ended up rescuing a pig struggling to swim in the middle of the water.

The video, recorded this month on a ferry in Tien Giang, shows a pig swimming in the water next to the watercraft, which is loaded with passengers.

The ferry's crew lowers a ramp for the swimming swine, but the pig swims up to the side of the craft instead.

Two men grab hold of the pig and are able to hoist it on board to catch a ride back to shore.

"On the way home, I went on a ferry across the river when we stumbled across a pig that was stuck in the river, so people were trying to help," the filmer wrote.
