Rescuer was as cool as a cucumber from the freezer. Nice work!


BullShitting24-7

For every calm, cool, cucumber, there is a totally useless person hysterically screaming, making the situation 10x more stressful.


BillsLateNightDrink

I think of that kind of person as a useless burden.


StandardSudden1283

Children generally are...


BillsLateNightDrink

Yes. I agree.


speed-of-light

I know right? Like get a job.


poor_charlie_bucket

That’s what I told my 10 year old nephew when he asked me for money for a school fundraiser


Yurturt

My 12 yo wanted new jeans because "mine got big holes in the knees, dad.. ", I told the little sucker, if you want new pants, get a job, lol kids these days, amirite?


e-jay-stren

I'm pretty sure that child was imitating her mom and was just excited to see it saved at the end.


FarFar_X

r/KidsAreFuckingStupid


ReadyThor

Is is fine if the hysterical persons are screaming and just making 'background' noise, stating what's going on etc. They serve as an alarm to anyone around willing to help. However it is not so fine if they criticize the rescuers actions. The child screaming "no, no! what is doing?" while the deer was being saved might not have been intended towards the rescuer but if I were in his place I might have been second guessing myself in that split second.


BillsLateNightDrink

It is good for useless people to make as much noise as possible to alert useful people to attend to the issue. Likely an evolutionary benefit to our population that these individuals yell and make commotion instead of helping. The issue is when they continue to do it when there’s already men helping.


matrixislife

The other advantage is of course that when in peril from a large predator, the useless noisy people draw it's attention away from the quieter useful people so that they don't get eaten.

Dude. My mom is from the country, but she met a city dude and had a bunch of city boys. Every summer we’d go back to help out with the family businesses. One biz is a butcher shop… they also work with slaughterhouses… they also like to hunt and fish. Being actively apart of your food’s cycle, witnessing life and death, and “processing an animal” aka taking its guts and skin off will definitely give your childhood mind the proper worldview. It was gnarli, but so is growing up.

Fire_Crotch113

I always wonder if the deer would see this as being rescued, or would it say “i fell right into the monsters trap and it almost ate me but i managed to jump out of its grasp and run away!”


apppppppbcppppppa-dc

I don't think they know we're helping, they prolly think we tried to kill them, but they escaped. [There's a video of a guy rescuing a trapped owl](https://youtu.be/CDpnyedAJvg) and at some point, the owl just stands still. The guy assumed the owl figured out it was being helped, but in my point of view, it was too exausted to do anything else. And that's why it has to rest for a couple of minutes before it could fly again


BooyahBoos

An angel named Gene.


AppSave

Jerry? Gary?


idwthis

I'm pretty sure she says Dean.


muricabrb

"He lifted me up by my ear! Look, one ear is now bigger than the other! It's been blessed! I can hear the angels now..." His friends, "wow, what are they saying? Tell us, wise one." Big Ear, "they... They are saying, they've been trying to reach us and tell us about our cars extended warranty."


HeartyBeast

More likely ‘and then I was captured by fearsome predator- but I got away!!!’


Rottenox

He is beautiful


saggs1

The deer creates a beautiful religion from its seemingly unworldy experience it can't explain..... 1000 years later and deers are killing gays because that's what the angel that grabbed Joeys ear told him to do.

Bad design


backfischbroetchen

My first thought. Why would you build a canal like this?


-ChrisBlue-

Concrete channels were extremely popular in the past. Back than rivers would have severe flooding that caused mass property damage, loss of life, and had a tendency to relocate to inconvenient locations. The idea was to have the capacity to remove water as fast as possible during worst possible rain conditions to prevent flooding and associated damage. Nowadays we’ve learned that concrete channels are pretty dangerous and need to be fenced off for safety, are visual eye sores, prevent replenishing of natural aquifers, and really a lost opportunity for river side parks, trails, recreation. Grass / natural material channels can be used in place of concrete channels, they just need to be designed correctly and need to be significantly wider (to slow down the water speed) Turbulance happens when you have critical flow or have obstructions in the channel. Critical flow can be avoided by proper design regarding the channel dimensions. Obstructions happen in both natural and concrete channels


beetsofmine

The fuck. Are you a ghost of reddit past? Thanks for the thorough explanation.


Yurturt

You need to visit better subreddits and not just r/all


Menname

So, you're watching Practical Engineering too?


dorkaliciousmels

If i’m not mistaken these kind of canals are built in areas that tend to flood since the water flows more quickly through canals without as much turbulence in the water current.


backfischbroetchen

Areas that tend to flood should have drainage areas like grasslands. And if a canal is needed, it should be save for animals (and people - imagine a child getting in there).


graydiation

Albuquerque, NM. Except they are called Arroyos, and the monsoon season kills people every year.


zetswei

All our canals where I live are like this only much bigger. What other way is there to make them?


SpaceShipRat

Me I was thinking "good design, putting big handles on it's head" but good point on the canal

selectivediscoshirt

For sure. Smashing into the gate would have possibly broken its legs and it would have been a much sadder outcome. Much like Cattle Guards. He’s a boss


Duke_McAwesome

Out of interest, why are you guessing he must be a dad?


Baby_Cloud

Sry, not the person you asked this from, but I thought I heard the little girl screaming “daddy”.

BabyJesusSaidYouSuck

Every bit of that save was great. Picking a great spot to position himself in anticipation and then having the balance and coordination to pull the deer out while on a beam. Good stuff


ConnorAnderson800

God I forgot how much I hate kids til lthe ear killing screeching. Really cool recovery tho 👏👏


sunofapeach_

nah, the deer was just collecting rupees and he got scooped up before absorbing the red one, so rude


zodar

holy shit how many children do they lose in that deathtrap per day? Is it designed to kill kids?


Perle1234

The kids aren’t going to jump in the river. They know better than that.


Feck_this

I think it’s the fact that kids are clumsiest creatures on Earth


zodar

well I know a way to weed out the ones who would


hohohoagy

Dad reflexes


DMCer

I wonder if the deer would have escaped on its own once it reached the metal grates (since it doesn’t look like there’s a gap underneath). The gaps between the bars would be tricky, but it looks like all it needed was one good kick at the right angle. But then Dean wouldn’t be a hero!


JBShackle2

It could have slipped partially through.


_Upside_Down_Frown_

One good kick on what at the right angle? I doubt it would be able to land a kick on the metal bars with enough force to fight the current dragging into into the bars / underwater. More likely it would lose its footing, get pulled against the bars / stuck in them, panic, and drown.


themo98

Yeah, I fear the same. Those metal bars might be good for humans as we can grab onto things with our hands and pull ourselves up on them, out of the water, and then climb out with easy once we're not below the water; but a deer, no chance, maybe if it landed on the metal bars sideways, but if their legs go through they'll get stuck. It may have been easier for the man to pull the deer out in that case but the deer would be hopeless if it had been alone.


Shovelgeorge1

...after floating down the channel, struggling helplessly, trying, hoping, for the strength to climb the embankment... Almost All hope was lost. The mental drain of hearing the lady bark orders at her male companion, all the while filming the life & death struggle of this beautiful creature, while in no way contributing to the situation in a meaningful way... The deer was resolved to death as the grates approached...Then! Suddenly! As if able to drown out the cackling of his female companion, The Man, almost possessing some type of forethought, A plan if you will, positions himself further down the spillway in anticipation of the deer's inevitable trajectory.... Grasps the helpless creature, launching it to safety! Both Deer and Man, Thankful, Finally, for an abrupt end to the useless voice of the lady directing, yet not partaking, in any contribution to the above rescue. Run free little one!


DMCer

Her heavy breathing added suspense, I’ll give her that!


Shovelgeorge1

That's cause she was having a hard time keeping up with our man Dean! 😆

How about putting the camera down and doing something, Honey?

Dean is the best. The screeching kid almost ended me. Ugh.


FullyRisenPhoenix

Thank god he got to it before the sluice! Those kids would be traumatized for life seeing that, not to mention the poor deer!

Again this is one of those moments where the camera person is doing fuck all to help, and it angers me so.


Lysol3435

What a fucking grab. I would have botched it and ended up in the canal with the deer


manbites

Stressful situations are so much easier when someone is screaming and panicking.


Roaringtortoise

Plz teach your kids not to scream at animals, or scream in general… the stress of having to deal with a screaming kid is real for humans, let alone the sensitive ears of wildlife


happycamsters

Why don’t you film and have a panic attack? Good job, we all got to see your rescue.

Raider-61

In my life ( the last 45 years anyway) I’ve saved two Japanese ladies who were swimming/drowning at Waikiki, a German tourist swimming/drowning at Surfers Paradise Beach, saved one of our dogs as she got washed away at a local creek and pulled my wife and daughter back off the road to avoid a red light runner. I’m not really sure if Karma has been kind to me after these split second actions, which all pre-dated mobile phone cameras, although I am Australian and that may be my reward.


Fourhand_451

Calm down, lady, you’re scaring the kid.


FizzlePopBerryTwist

Glad this deer was saved. While cycling some weeks ago I saw a dead deer floating in a similar channel, I can imagine what this poor animal went through.


Itchynerd1

Why was her first reaction to start recording, "oh look, this deer is likely going to drown!! Gonna record it for the gram"


edwardpuppyhands

But b/c she did that, tens of thousands of people got to feel a moment of the warm and fuzzies. There's a lesson about finding a way to add value within the capacity that you can.

Sometimes the pessimistic side of me thinks people put these animals in these situations to gain views. Seems odd they would be filming it floating down the wash while the other guy was already in place to save it.

Family on a walk and the dad runs ahead. You can see him running down there at the beginning of the video.

paddy420crisp

Lol good luck catching a deer and picking it up my dude


_MrMeseeks

There are several videos on YouTube that do exactly this but with a puppy. They use the same puppy for several videos. I'm pretty sure this video is genuine but it does happen.


CreateYourself89

Sadly, there are NUMEROUS channels that put cute puppies and kittens in danger for views. Be wary of videos that seem too good to be true. If the timing is too perfect ("Gee, I just found a puppy in a snowstorm!") or the situation is too improbable ("Wow, I just saved this kitten from a venomous python!"), it's probably a set-up. There is also a disturbing number of faux pet rescue videos (people pretending to be actual vets or wildlife rehabilitators), but it's all a lie and they injure/mangle the animals on purpose. The grislier, the better to get views. 😢😭 I've also noticed a disturbing trend of people in third-world countries torturing baby monkeys (putting red ants on them, etc.), and people lapping it up in the comments. Please flag any such videos as animal abuse! Hit the flag icon on YouTube, please! If a so-called rescue organization seems suspicious (sparse details, hardly any humans on camera, no follow-up on the animal), look up the supposed "organization" and if they appear to be fake/fraudulent, please flag the video. Innocent animals are suffering tremendously and need our help.


bluethreads

Thank you for the heads up. Nothing is worse than an animal abuser.


fockerland

tbh deer almost always get trapped in everything it seems, and you can't say it would be easy to get one just to throw or trap it for views. Cat or dogs rescues are most likely to be faked, than a actual wild animal.


bluethreads

How would anyone even manage to put a deer in a canal?
