Deaf Man with Frozen Deer He Rescued from Lake

Vimeo user cj uploaded a video from a deaf family friend who encountered a young deer that had fallen into a frozen lake. After pulling the deer out, he pulled out a camera to tell the story -while the deer stood by!

Redditor ceejface (cj) provided a translation of the sign language.

I was driving along when I see this deer struggling to survive. I felt obligated to help her, so I pulled over, trekked through the woods, and crawled out onto the ice. I used a rope to pull her out. I am so glad she is safe. Now we need to find her mom.

[pets deer] I will call her Miss Ice River. She must be so cold. I am so happy that she survived. Farewell.

That was followed by a discussion on the difference between one-handed and two-handed sign language, as the guy had to use one hand to hold the camera. -via Uproxx

Update: the original video was pulled, and in its place we have embedded a news report.
