Deer Rescued by Hovercraft

Deer were stranded on Albert Lea Lake, Minnesota

Deer Rescued by Hovercraft – Through the interest and concern by viewers shown via the ABC 6 News FaceBook page, Doug and James Kenison, owners of Medcity Hovercraft knew something had to be done, and only they could save the deer.

The surface of the ice covered lake was partially frozen and slippery, the deer could not walk across the ice, and were unable to reach land. They were cold and starving, and ABC 6 News viewers were wondering who was going to help. Doug and James decided to try do a rescue by hovercraft, and they successfully slid the deer back to safety. There is great video footage, see below.

Of-course, boats and Jet Skis are pretty useless on ice, whereas snow mobiles fall through ice if the surface does not hold its weight. Hovercraft can fly over any flat surface, so save many lives. What a pity the local fire rescue department don’t have hovercraft to do their own rescues from ice covered areas. Many fire rescue departments are still restricted by the length of rope they can throw to a victim, assuming victims can catch and hold the rope – hypothermia affects strength and muscle mobility. If you fall through the ice, or get sucked into mud or quicksand, better hope someone locally has a hovercraft handy. For more details about Medcity hovercraft, visit http://medcityhovercraft.com/
