Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Firefighters in Pennsylvania worked together with police and local residents to rescue a deer stuck in a swimming pool.

The Broughton Volunteer Fire Department said a crew responded along with South Park Police on Wednesday evening to rescue a deer reported trapped in a swimming pool in residential South Park Township back yard.


The department said local residents assisted firefighters and police officers in lifting the deer to dry land.

"The deer was very cold from being in water but appears it will make a full recovery as it was back on all four legs within minutes!" the fire department said.
