What a hero: Watch monkey save its friend's life at Kanpur station

You don't get to see such heroic acts everyday. A video showing a monkey saving another monkey's life after it became unconscious on being electrocuted, is quite heart-warming.

The monkey was electrocuted while walking on high tension wires at Kanpur's railway station. It lost consciousness and fell  on the tracks . And that's when the other monkey came the rescue.

Ultimately, he succeeded and how.
