This Deer Needed a Lifeguard on Duty for Its Swim

A young deer wasn’t trying to go for a swim one Sunday afternoon when it accidentally fell in a pool.

James and Alicia Angeli heard a splash and immediately ran to their swimming pool where they found a deer inside.

Alicia recorded a video of her husband rescuing the poor deer from its swim and trying to calm it down following its scary fall.

James told WNEP that it seems as though the deer knew it was being rescued as “he came right over to me like he knew and I just reached in, grabbed him, lifted him up, put him on the ground.”

However, the deer couldn’t run away because it was too cold from the frigid water so they wrapped him in a towel to warm him up.

Soon he ran off into the woods and hasn’t returned to their pool since.
