Deer rescued from storm drain by police and firefighters

Firefighters and police officers rescued a deer stuck in a storm drain in Austin, Texas, on Tuesday afternoon.

A passer-by spotted the deer beneath a flyover, but was unable to rescue it from the drain. Only its head was visible.

At around 2:30pm, firefighters and police successfully rescued the animal from the drain and released the deer safely.

"It may not look like it, but this deer was in the right place at the right time because the storm drain it fell into was relatively easy for us to access," Austin Fire Department wrote on their Facebook page. "Our crews were able to safely remove it and it's been released, uninjured."
