A father and son were enjoying an afternoon at Albert Lea Lake when they spotted something incredible.

They had been hoverboarding over the icy ground, when they came across two animals who looked to be stranded in the middle of the ice.

It was obvious that the two creatures were in desperate need of some help, as they had somehow slid into the centre of the large frozen lake.

It appeared to be two deer who may have walked to the lake for water, however when they realised it was solid, they tried to walk on the icy surface. Unfortunately, the deer ended up sliding across the ice and were far from the edge of the lake. The two men knew they had to try and do something to help the poor creatures.
