Police officers in New York rescued a baby deer stuck in dangerously cold waters.
According to a news release from the Suffolk County Police Department, a park ranger first spotted the distressed fawn stuck in the chilly waters of Narrow Bay in Shirley, New York, on Sunday. News of the struggling baby animal made its way to the Suffolk County Police Department, which sent out officers to assist in the fawn’s rescue.
Officers Robert Daniels, Robert King, and Gary Quenzer responded to the call and worked as a team to reach the fawn, who was floating “half-submerged in the icy water roughly 60 feet off-shore.”
According to the release, all three officers put on cold weather rescue gear for the lifesaving mission, and then King laid on an ice sled while Daniels and Quenzer helped him deploy the sled out to the deer and back.
