JEFFERSON COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A Fort Drum firefighter from Long Island considers himself a city boy, but on Tuesday, he was the closest he’s ever been to a deer.
He got very up close and personal when he volunteered to suit up and rescue a deer from the icy Black River waters.
Here’s a picture of Jeff Hambsch, along with firefighter Jordan Saber, securing the deer with a rope. They hauled it back in and while frightened, the deer was unharmed. They say it was a great opportunity to put their ice rescue certification to the test.
