Man leaps into ocean after a giant squid latches to his paddle board

Good Samaritan, James Taylor, was doing his best to assist an injured squid when the squid suddenly got a bit more attached than he expected.

We can see Taylor remaining calm as he helps the squid, but when the squid decides it’s more interested in Taylor’s board than the help he was offering, Taylor leaps from his board and into the ocean.

It was then when Taylor realised that there was absolutely no way he could survive out in the big blue ocean on his own, so he bravely manoeuvred around the suction-cupped creature to return to his board.

In the end, we can see the two individuals becoming the best of friends by learning to share the much-desired paddle board. How sweet! Faith in humanity is definitely restored.
