Man saves young deer that fell into housing project pool

ROSS, Pa. (AP) A Pennsylvania man saved a young deer from a swimming pool at a housing development in the Pittsburgh suburbs.

Kevin Brady, 55, says his reaction to save the deer on Aug. 20 was just instinct.

A video of the rescue was posted on YouTube, then shared to Facebook and Twitter by Michelle Wright, a news anchor on WTAE-TV.

She's a friend of Brady's.

The deer fell into a pool at the Mews of Town North housing development in Ross Township.

The fawn was carried to the pool's edge by Brady, and a township officer helped other men lift it out of the pool.

The rescuers tied beach towels together to help lasso the deer.
