For Natalie Belisto, a student and soccer player at Central Michigan University, it helped her save a squirrel's life after her friend found the unfortunate animal drowning in a pond. "It definitely was drowning because it was really slow when we saw it and it started to dip its head under the water" Belsito told her school newspaper.
