Ariel Cordova Rojas found a sick swan in the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in New York City and decided to get her to an animal hospital for treatment. With a background working with wild birds, Rojas knew how to approach a bird like this. The hard part was that the animal hospital was across town and Rojas was on her bike that day. She gently wrapped the 17-pound bird in her coat and walked a mile carrying the bird while pushing her bike. Kind strangers gave her a ride and got her bike to the subway station. The injured bird took a ride on the subway with Rojas, and they made it to the hospital. Now, the swan is on the road to recovery, due to the kindness of strangers.
