MOUNT SINAI, N.Y. (AP) — Police on New York's Long Island spent over four hours rescuing a baby deer that fell into a 20-foot-deep manhole.
The cute, speckled creature scampered into the woods after it was released Thursday by its beaming, burly rescuers.
Landscapers called Suffolk County police around 3:30 p.m. Thursday after they saw the deer fall into the hole near a vacant lot in Mount Sinai.
Four emergency service officers responded.
The officers said the deer looked scared and sounded like it was crying.
One officer descended while wearing a breathing apparatus and a harness.
He placed another harness on the deer. The team raised it to ground level around 8 p.m.
They proudly posed for pictures with the fawn before releasing it.
