A giant tortoise rescued his overturned friend in a Taiwan zoo, which can be seen in a 55-second video uploaded to the Internet last month.

The video was filmed at a zoo in Taiwan’s capital Taipei. As the turtle helps his friend back to his feet, a group of schoolchildren cheer the helpful turtle on. When the second turtle finally plants his feet on the ground, the children erupt in roars of joy.

According to The DoDo, the children cheer "jiayou," a phrase used for encouragement.

“That’s what you call friendship,” one commenter wrote.

Since it was uploaded to YouTube, the video has accumulated 670,000 views.
