MIDLAND, MI (WNEM) -

Take a look at the pictures and video making their way around social media.

It shows Midland residents Eric Larsen, Sam Korpal, and Cruz Sapien saving a fawn from rising flood waters on Friday.

Larsen reached out to TV5 and said he jumped into action when he saw the baby deer, and its twin, struggling to swim and crying for help.

He said that once he rescued both from the Rail Trail area they ran to the mother that had been waiting nearby.

All three ran towards Northwood University.

An avid outdoorsman, Larsen said he couldn't just standby listening to the cries and seeing the panic. He said he chose to give life a chance, instead of certain death.
