Gil Lancour of Cranmoor from Wisconsin was driving near the Cranmoor marshes and spotted the animal in distress.
Lancour said that he walked out onto the ice and sat with her for a bit before pushing her off the ice. He told NBC15:
She was struggling and I knew she needed help to get off the ice, I didn’t even think twice about it. She needed to get off the ice and I was the only one around to help her.
His friend, John Moss, filmed the rescue.
