A deer trapped in frozen water got a big helping hand from a rescue crew in Ashland on Sunday.

Authorities received a call about the distressed deer early Sunday. Crews rushed out to assist, using an ice rescue sled in making the rescue.

The deer needed multiple attempts to get out, falling repeatedly back through the ice.

The Ashland Fire Department captured video of the rescue crew in the moment the deer became free. It took some assistance to stand up, but then ran off away into the nearby woods.

Deer released
