17-Year-Old Surfer Helps Deer Swimming off New Jersey Coast
Oh, deer! When a doe got into a little trouble off the coast of the Jersey Shore, some surfers paddled in to help. Sam Halprin, 17, was surfing when he spotted the animal bobbing up and down in the water. "I was like, 'Oh my god, it's a deer,'" he said. The deer was struggling to stay afloat in the frigid 50-degree water. "I gave him a couple of pushes and he started swimming away from me faster and headed in toward the beach. And then he got pushed by a couple of waves," Halprin said.
