Oh, Deer


When a 911 caller reported a deer stuck in the ice of Maryland's Patapsco River, a natural resources officer and a crew from the Baltimore County fire department promptly arrived, then began discussing whether to rescue the deer. But two passersby decided to do more than talk. Khalil Abusakran got a rubber boat out of his truck, and Jim Hart joined him. They rowed out to the deer, breaking the ice along the way and opening up a path for it to get free. They were then fined $90 each for not having life vests on the boat.
