Take note – story published 5 years and 4 months ago

LTV's staff are renowned throughout the Latvian Public Media corridors for their resourcefulness and fearlessness, so it was no surprise that recently they rode to the rescue after spotting an emergency situation.

As you can see below, cameras captured the increasing anxiety of an individual trapped in a large plastic bucket with nothing but a huge amount of sunflower seeds for sustenance. The tense situation lasted several minutes, with the efforts of passers-by to free the victim proving ineffective not least because they were preoccupied eating the seeds themselves.

However, no such distraction affected LTV's intrepid employee who appeared on the scene in the nick of time like the US 4th Cavalry and achieved liberation in a matter of moments. The freed feeder was last seen heading in the direction of the Maskavas Forštate district, where sunflower seeds are also a popular snack.
