A helicopter came to the rescue to get a deer and her fawn off a frozen harbor in Nova Scotia, Canada after a retired biologist spotted them.
The doe struggled for hours to get on her feet while the fawn stayed close to her side. The ice was too thin to try a rescue on foot so the man notified wildlife officials.
A helicopter arrived and knew right away the deer was in trouble. The fawn ran to the shore, but the doe was too afraid to move.
In a complicated maneuver, the pilot used the downdraft of the chopper to push the deer to shore.
When the exhausted doe finally reached the shore she gradually got to her feet and the deer and her fawn walked away into the woods.
