A rookie Florida Fish & Wildlife Officer helps save a deer from drowning.

Officer Keith Baber, who graduated from the academy in August, was patrolling the Apalachicola River with Field Training Officer Mike Guy last week when they spotted a fawn swimming in circles. They say she was distressed and exhausted.

Baber was able to grab the fawn and bring her to safety. They released her on the bank so she could reunite with her mother.
