Mark Freeley, the dog's owner, told NBC New York that he had been taking his dog, Storm, for a walk along PJ Harbor around 8 a.m. Sunday, when Storm jumped into the water to swim after something.

Video posted to Facebook shows a golden retriever leaping into the water off Long Island and returning with a drowning fawn in its mouth.

Freeley started filming when he saw that Storm was desperately trying to drag something back on shore.

"And then he started nudging it, and started pulling it to make sure she's gonna be OK I guess", Freeley said.

Once Storm made it to shore, he placed the deer on the sand.

Mark Freeley, a lawyer, took the video on Sunday, Fox 13 NY said.

Freeley immediately called experts, who scared the fawn back into the water when they arrived at the beach.

Once on land, the fawn ran off but soon collapsed, Freeley said. After about eight minutes, Freeley and a member of Strong Island Rescue were able to once again save the deer. He knew what Storm went through and felt his pain. She ran about a mile on the beach to help.

Kutzing carried the fawn back to the rescue van.

The fawn, according to one of the rescuers, was covered in ticks and had an eye injury.
