Vimeo user cj uploaded a video from a deaf family friend who encountered a young deer that had fallen into a frozen lake. After pulling the deer out, he pulled out a camera to record the aftermath. Redditor ceejface (cj) provided a translation of the sign language.
I was driving along when I see this deer struggling to survive. I felt obligated to help her, so I pulled over, trekked through the woods, and crawled out onto the ice. I used a rope to pull her out. I am so glad she is safe. Now we need to find her mom.
[After he pets deer] I will call her Miss Ice River. She must be so cold. I am so happy that she survived. Farewell.(via Uproxx)
