Rescuing This Calf Was A Breeze

The problem: A calf is stuck out in the middle of an Oklahoma pond, on thin ice.

If the ice breaks, which is likely, the calf drowns.

In this photo from SkyNews9 in Oklahoma, the station's helicopter pilot sets off to rescue the calf on a frozen pond. Winds from the rotors did the trick.

The solution: SkyNews9 television chopper pilot Mason Dunn heads off to the pond, lowers the chopper close to the pond, and blasts the calf ashore with the wind from the copter’s blades. Easy: The calf, propelled by the wind, skittered onto shore, unharmed. Ah. A happy ending.

Watch for yourself, it’s fun:
