Worker Sees Something Struggling In Mud, Climbs Into Excavator For Risky Rescue


Bill Davis of Tacoma, Washington, was checking on some property for a company he works for when he noticed something moving in the mud.

“I wouldn’t have seen them if they hadn’t moved and caught my eye!” Davis wrote on Facebook. “It broke my heart to see this!”


The big hearted construction worker saw two yearling black tail deer helplessly struggling to escape the strong grasp of sticky mud.

Davis “couldn’t watch them struggle,” so, according to his son-in-law, Aaron Garney, he “orchestrated a rescue operation with his cell phone” and “a skilled excavator operator” saved the day by carefully plucking the two young deer from the deep, deadly mud.

Davis only posted one of the rescues to his Facebook page, but both rescues went off without a hitch.

It’s an amazing thing when people come together to rescue a life in the balance! Kudos to these awesome heroes.
