When this family was on a holiday at the Red Sea in Soma Bay they did a very good deed indeed. On day, while they were walking along the beach they noticed a stranded octopus in the sand on its death bed, without a way to get back into the ocean, he was slowly drying out and dehydrating.

Acting quickly, this family stepped in and saved his life by pushing him back into the water. He needed some time to recover and then he swam away.

The next day, they went to the same beach for a walk and saw a shadow in the water coming directly to them. First they didn't recognize it, but soon they realized that it was the same octopus they rescued the day before!

He recognized them and accompanied them for a long time while they were walked along the beach and continuously tried to touch their feet. They are sure that this octopus came back to thank them for saving his life.

This video shows the special moment that will melts your hearts. It is important to cherish these special moments between animals and humans. It is the thank you they received that they will never forget!

When we do kind things for others we always like to hear a thank you. Receiving acknowledgement for doing something kind is very important and when we do favors for animals, we typically don’t expect them to be able to thank us. This story is proof that animals also have manners and know how to give thanks.

This story is a valuable reminder that we need to be kinder to one another. If someone does something nice for you, always be sure to thank them!

    It's said octopi are very intelligent. I couldn't help think at the last comment about "we'll never eat octopuses again," are they now waiting to save the live of, and be given thanks by a cow before they stop eating them too?

      yeah, whoop on people who did a wonderful thing and changed their attitude. Even baby steps should be celebrated, not denigrated :/

    Sorry about the other comment for naming the Octopus "rumble". The family named him "Kurt". So basicly Mr. Kurt "the octopus, was a pet, in my opinion, and he was asking for food. Since he never was wild before, he didn't know how to fetch for himself. Hopefully he's going to learn how to fetch before he becomes food himself.

    I would have grabbed it after if healed, cut it up. Tossed it in some batter, fried em up and topped em in lemon juice, with tartar sauce on the side! Yum Yum
