After shuttling their furry passenger ashore, Morse then set him free.
"As soon as the opossum was set on the ground, he quickly moved into the woods and tall grass," she said. "I am confident the opossum survived."
Had the pair not spotted the opossum, and decided to stop and help him, things could have ended tragically different. But Morse believes they were simply doing what any decent person would do. "See a living creature struggling and help it if you can," she said, adding:
"We happened to be at the right place and at the right time to help. I know there are other good people in the area who would do the same."
