Mark Freeley was walking with his two dogs Sunday morning when he came across the baby deer floating in the chilly waters off the NY coast.

Mark Freeley, 53, was out for a walk with his dogs, Storm and Sara, on Sunday morning when they spotted a small fawn swimming in the harbor.

Freeley can be heard on the video encouraging the dog, "Good boy, Storm!"

The video shows the dog swimming to shore while grabbing a large fawn in its mouth.

The group wrote about its workers; "The deer got spooked and jumped back into the water".

"And then he started nudging it, and started pulling it to make sure she was going to be OK, I guess", Freeley told CBS New York.

Once on land, the fawn ran off but soon collapsed, Freeley said.

She was put in a quiet room to rest and will receive fluids, feedings and Strong Island Animal Rescue League said when she is old enough she will be released back into the wild.

"The second rescue was a lot of anxiety", Floridia said. She ran about a mile on the beach to help. It was reportedly covered in ticks and sustained an eye injury, but it's resting at a local animal rescue until it's recovered.

The fawn is rescued at an area animal rescue until it can get back on its feet.
