Very Cool Rescue
A helicopter pilot in Oklahoma saved a deer... with the rotor wash from his chopper blades.
A deer stranded and trapped on frozen Lake Thunderbird was saved by an Oklahoma City television station helicopter pilot.Here's a video of the rescue.
K-W-T-V pilot Mason Dunn used the wind from the helicopter's rotors to push the deer across the ice. The animal fell once halfway into a break in the ice but the wind from the helicopter lifted it up and out of the water and sent it sliding across the ice-covered lake to shore.
The deer struggled to gain its footing on the icy shore but it eventually ran into a nearby wooded area.
