A Minnesota father and son heard about some deer who were stranded on a frozen lake, via Facebook, and decided to try and help them.

They took hovercraft, and went out onto the lake where they found the several deer unable to to regain their footing on the slipper ice. The deer were exhausted from the efforts of trying to get off the ice.

The father and son towed the nervous deer back to shore using some rope and their hovercraft. After resting for a bit, all three deer that they rescued were able to return safely to the forest.

The video quickly went viral, gaining millions of views, and was then selected as a GoPro video of the week.
