NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- T-V helicopter to the rescue.

When a deer got stranded on a frozen lake in Oklahoma, a news helicopter swooped in to save it. The pilot used the wind from the aircraft's rotor to push the deer to safety.

The deer had lost its footing on the icy lake yesterday. Its back legs had slipped into a hole in the ice and it couldn't get up. A small crowd was watching it struggle near the shore.

That's when K-W-T-V pilot Mason Dunn came to the rescue. He flew in low and the wind from the rotor sent the deer sliding on its belly across the ice until it reached shore.

Once on shore, the deer took a few moments to regain its composure, then scampered off into the woods.
