Pennings says they were at the scene for about an hour, adding it took about a half hour to rescue the animal, and then they stayed on scene for an additional 30 minutes to nurse the deer back, since it was hypothermic.

He says no crew members were injured during the incident, which happened near the Waupaca Foundry.
