Pair Rescue Deer From Frigid Waters

Four Hours Before Animal Left On Its Own Power

It took nearly four hours for a deer to get back on its feet, after a pair in the Lindsay area rescued it from Omemee River.

Stephanie and Thomas Christopher were on their way to Lindsay when they spotted a deer going through the ice. The pair returned with a boat and managed to pull the animal into it.
