Brett posted the video on Instagram with the caption, "Happy 4th of July, Saved a baby eagle from drowning in the middle of the lake, had to prove to my son I'm cool."

One of the comments read, "That was amazing! Thanks so much for caring!"

Man Rescues Eagle From Drowning:

While he was trying to hold the eagle properly, seems that the bird tried to dig its talons in the man’s arm. Although the screams, the thereafter appears to be fine. The whole video was captured by his partner who can be heard asking if he is fine. The couple also has a baby together who can be seen lying in the boat's corner wrapped properly in a blanket.
