A 10-year-old girl named Hannah was playing outside with a friend on September 19 when she noticed a baby pigeon who had fallen from the rafters of a shed. The little pigeon was all alone and clearly injured — and Hannah immediately knew that she had to help him.
Hannah carefully scooped up the pigeon and brought him inside to show her mom. Her mom agreed that the pigeon was too young and hurt to survive on his own, so Hannah gave him a bath to clean him up and made plans to find him help the next day.
“The little guy was hurt and my daughter made me promise to bring him to the vet,” Christine Giersdorf, Hannah’s mom, told The Dodo.
