Recreational fisherman Don Dunbar was fishing off the coast of Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island on Sept. 7, when he spotted a bald eagle in distress swimming toward his boat.
Dunbar dropped his fishing lines and picked up his net to scoop the bird out of the water.
It's unknown how long the eagle was floating. When Dunbar picked it up onto his boat, the eagle was exhausted and its wings were drenched.
