This Deer Was Minutes From Freezing To Death…But Then A Silent Hero Showed Up

A kindhearted deaf man was driving down a highway one cold winter day when he happened to look at the river. Thinking he saw something move near the edge of the frozen river, he stopped his car. Clearly seeing something struggling in the water, he had to walk almost half a mile through woods to reach what turned out to be a deer. Using a rope, he was able to free the deer from a situation that could easily have taken her life.

After the daring rescue, the two shared a touching moment.

Here’s a transcript of what the man says: “I was driving along when I saw this deer struggling to survive. I felt obligated to help her, so I pulled over, trekked through the woods, and crawled out onto the ice. I used a rope to pull her out. I am so glad she is safe. Now we need to find her mom. [pets deer] I will call her Miss Ice River. She must be so cold. I am so happy that she survived. Farewell.”

Truly a job well done.
