KWTV Pilot Mason Dunn Uses News Chopper to Rescue Stranded Calf

KWTV helicopter pilot Mason Dunn is building a reputation for himself in Oklahoma as a local hero.  On Monday, Dunn rescued a calf that had gotten stuck in an icy pond.

A rancher near Watonga, OK called KWTV, Oklahoma City’s CBS-affiliate, when one of his calves became stranded in the middle of a pond.  The pond had a thick layer of ice on top of it and the rancher remembered that Dunn had used his KWTV chopper a few years ago to save a deer that was trapped in ice.

Dunn came to the rescue, using the wind from the whirling helicopter blades  to crack the ice and push the calf back to shore.

Here’s the amazing video:
