Thanks to Ohio's Port Clinton Police Department Officer Von Rider and Patrolman Ryan Yost, a one-month-old fawn was rescued after the tiny animal found herself with her head stuck between the roots of a tree in the shallow part of the Portage River reported 506-14 on the organization's Facebook.

When the officers spotted an adult deer looking toward the area at the Brands Boat Works Marina where the doe was stuck, the compassionate men in blue got to work.

One officer secured the boat to a tree while the other officer reached down and freed the little fawn's head. The baby probably fell in when trying to drink water.

The exhausted fawn was placed safely on land.

According to the ZanesvilleTimesRecorder.com, the baby didn't seem to have any injuries. “As we were leaving, I looked back and the mom deer was going back toward it," stated Patrolman Yost.

Look at the photo carefully to find the fawn.
