Although a train was fast approaching on the track, the other swan didn’t move a bit. It settled on the track besides its partner and kept mourning its loss even as those present around tried their best to lure it away.
The swan kept mourning for over an hour, making everyone present emotional. The heart-stirring moment resulted in the delay of 23 trains.
Later on, firefighters took away the dead swan and released its partner in the river.
Swans are known as the emblem of love. They form monogamous pair bonds that can last for life. If their partner dies, they could die of heartbreak.
Their loyalty to their mates is so described that the image of two swans swimming with their necks entwined in the shape of a heart has become a nearly universal symbol of love.
Also, Aphrodite, the Greek god of love, is often depicted riding a swan, or her chariot is drawn by swans.
Relationships are integral to anyone’s life. And the incident shows the power of true love, no matter whether it’s a human or an animal.
