WOW!!! (MUST SEE)… This heartwarming story of the day is brought to you courtesy of a little Magellanic penguin and the man who saved his life.

A penguin in South America swims 5,000 miles each year to be reunited with retired bricklayer and part time fisherman Joao Pereira de Souza, 71. De Souza lives in an island village just outside Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and this is where he found the tiny penguin, covered in oil and close to death on his local beach back in 2011.

He did what was necessary to save the penguin’s life, and now, each year during its migration route, it stops off to pay a visit and spend some time with the man who saved his life and ended up becoming his best friend.
