(Scroll down for video) A heroic fisherman was seen on video rescuing an elderly couple who was trapped deep in mud.

The couple of Norway, was vacationing in Thailand when they went birdwatching and became trapped deep in the mud.

A fisherman who spotted the couple, came to their rescue by laying face down so they could pull themselves out of harm’s way.

Cameraman Theerasak Saksritawee captured the heartwarming video of the rescue.

The husband and wife, who are believed to be about 60 years old, were trying get out of the mud, but they seemed to be stuck and were unable to move.

Fisherman Chat Ubonchinda, saw them and came to their rescue. He first removed their photography gear and then attempted to pull them to safety.

However, when he was unsuccessful, Ubonchinda lied face down in the mud and encouraged the couple to use his back as a stepping stone.

Once the tourists were safe, the fisherman returned to his boat. The couple later went to the home of the fisherman to thank him for saving them.

The video was uploaded to Facebook, and it quickly went viral. It was viewed more than 2 million times in just 2 days, and was shared over 64,000 times.
