A pilot stopped his plane on the runway just before the takeoff to save a tiny animal to pass the path in Scotland.
The kind hearted pilot was all set to fly when he noticed a baby hedgehog in the runway, reports Hindustan Times. The pilot stopped the plane to give time to the tiny animal to pass the path safely.
The incident caused a delay in the flight by about two minutes but the passengers were not annoyed as the pilot already conveyed the reason for delay.
"I was on the LM156 from Stornoway to Inverness at 5pm when the aircraft was taxiing towards the runway when all of a sudden the brakes went on like an emergency stop!" tweeted a passenger onboard the flight. "After a minute the captain came over the radio telling us that he was waiting on a baby hedgehog to pass," he added.
"The captain safely avoided a prickly situation for the little hedgehog, following procedure until the animal was off the tarmac," the director of the airline.
