Oh deer! Crews in New Jersey make daring rescue on frozen pond

ROXBURY, NJ- It might have nearly been spring, but it was still too cold to go swimming.

ROXBURY, N.J. -Crews have rescued a deer that was stuck in a frozen pond in New Jersey for almost a day. She was sore and exhausted from being splayed across the ice, Simonetti said, but was expected to back to her "deer" old self before long. She was stuck in the ice for almost 24 hours, Roxbury fire officials said, as efforts to save her were unsuccessful at first.

The crew suspended their efforts around dusk, and returned on Sunday morning before the deer was pulled to safety after 10am. Roxbury Fire Companies 1, 2 and 3, EMS and ACO also responded.

The Roxbury Township police called the rescue "impossible" and urged people not to try to save the deer themselves, citing safety concerns.

A group of New Jersey first responders wound up splashing around in a frigid lake after they tried to save a deer from an ice patch and their water vehicle flipped, according to reports.

Kelly Simonetti of the Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary said the animal looked "like a bad drunk" and took four to six hours to recover under some pine trees on the ground.
