… after falling 20 feet down manhole
This touched my heart I had to share this after reading it and this really made my day, it’s true kindness
Police spent over four hours rescuing a baby deer Thursday that fell 20 feet into a manhole in Long Island, N.Y.
Four emergency service officers responded around 5 p.m., according to a police report, and tested the environment to make sure it was safe to descend in to the manhole. After putting on a harness and breathing apparatus, Emergency Service Officer Walter Justincic was lowered approximately 18-20 feet down to the deer, police said. Justincic put a separate harness on the torso of the deer, which police said was crying but otherwise seemed fine.
The officers hoisted the deer to ground level at around 8 p.m. and then brought up Justincic back up. The officers then released the deer and it ran into the woods, seemingly unscathed.
Life can be beautiful
I really was very happy to read this, what a lovely and happy story! Plus a great ending, the fawn was fine and all I am hoping is the fawn is safe and sound with it’s Mom In my heart, it is …
So I did the right thing ~ I said I was “holding out for a hero” and I did and he is indeed a knight in shining armor. So the moral of the story should always be, make sure you find yourself a hero 😉 They are truly the best.
