Ms Radima told Viral Hog: ‘My son was returning home from school and noticed a lamb in a trench. He made several attempts to help but he did not succeed.
‘He came home and asked me to help.
‘We filmed the video for home viewing but then decided to upload it in order to encourage others not to leave animals in trouble.’
Ms Radima later took to Instagram to reveal the trapped lamb had been saved.
