WATCH: Ohio police officer rescues deer from swimming pool

The Madeira, Ohio Police Department occasionally responds to reports of animals trapped or in distress.

According to the department’s Facebook page, Officer Phil Mitchell recently responded to a report of a young fawn that had become separated from its mother inside a fenced swimming pool.

While trying to free the fawn from the fenced-in area, it fell into the swimming pool, but Mitchell was able to quickly rescue it from the water.

Soon after, he reunited the fawn with its mother- nicely done, officer!
