Firefighters at Richburg Fire-Rescue in South Carolina found the tiny bird "exhausted and dehydrated", the department wrote on Facebook.

Chief John Agee, Fire Marshal David McCain and firefighter Jobeth Holmes sat beside it, offering it water from the plastic cap of a water bottle "until it was able to stand and fly away," assistant fire chief T. Melton told The News & Observer.

"You can teach almost anyone how to be a firefighter, a medic or just about anything imaginable. What is virtually impossible to teach is compassion," the department wrote. "We are fortunate that we have a tremendous group in our department that has passion and desire to help, regardless of the situation."
