Sally’s owner’s boyfriend Aidan from London told the Daily Mail, that is was “heartbreaking” to watch her struggle. Instead of just watching Sally live out the rest of her life brushing the pebbles at the bottom of the tank, Aidan decided to use his thinking cap and created a floatation device to help Sally reclaim her buoyancy.
On his Youtube page where the video transformation is featured it says, “Sally is my girlfriend’s 23-year-old goldfish! For the past few months she was stuck on the bottom of her tank. It was heartbreaking. So I made her a little lifejacket and now she’s killing it!”
