I realize that this video is basically just a glorified commercial for the GoPro camera, but that doesn't change the fact that the footage is pretty incredible, and heartwarming.

The GoPro camera really is one of the coolest inventions of the past several years. I think, at first, these tiny, portable, durable little cameras were most associated with extreme sporting events, being used by skateboarders, BMX bikers, snowboarders, surfers, etc. But nowadays they are being used by all sorts of people to capture some really amazing footage - stuff we would never have been able to see. I've seen one strapped to an eagle recently...I've seen one attacked by a bear, giving an up close and personal look inside a bear's mouth...landscapes and aerial footage that is just mind blowing. Just do a YouTube search for "GoPro videos" and prepare to waste an afternoon.

In this case, the GoPro allows to see a simple, caring act performed by one of our everyday heroes. We see a fireman entering a home that has obviously been destroyed by a fire. While walking through the house, he notices a motionless kitten on the floor. He could have just assumed that the kitty was gone - but, instead, he decides to try and save the little feline's life.
