Women Who Were Rescued on Unicorn Float Thankful Deputies Stumbled Upon Them

The incident occurred Saturday.

The five women stranded on a giant inflatable unicorn float are laughing it off after their daring rescue on a lake in Minnesota.

“We could've paddled in, it just would've taken us awhile. I wasn't going to jump in,” one of the women told Inside Edition of this past weekend's rescue. 

The women told Inside Edition that they didn’t call 911, but rather deputies spotted them first. 

It was only when the deputies pulled over to ask the women for a picture that they realized they were caught.

Shortly after the rescue, Chisago County Sheriff’s Office posted the video of the incident on Twitter, where it quickly went viral.

“With a handful of laughs and some mad rescue roping skills they were pulled back to the dock,” officials wrote.
