One day fire broke out in a very popular forest. Everyone ran in panic to get to safety. There were only two people left in the forest, a blind man and a lame man. In his panic, the blind man was running straight towards the fire.
"Not that way!" shouted the lame man. "You will end up in the fire."
"What way should I go then?" asked the blind man.
"I can show you the way" the lame man answered "but I can't run. If you carry me on your back, we could both escape. Together we would be sure of getting out of this danger."
The blind man took the advice of the lame man and they both reached safety.
