A true hero doesn’t think twice before helping someone in need, even if that someone is actually a four-legged furry friend. Last week, a 27-year-old man from the UK risked his life to save a drowning deer and people are hailing is courageous actions.

Marc Headon and Jamie Toyne were driving home from work last week when they spotted something floating in a nearby canal.

When they pulled over to get a closer look, the pair discovered that there was a struggling deer in the water.

Marc Headon didn’t hesitate before stripping down to his underwear and leaping into the freezing canal to reach the deer.

According to BBC, Headon stayed in his underwear for 40 minutes to make sure the deer was warm enough.

Once the deer seemed strong enough, they sent him in for treatment and later released him back into the wild.
