    Hebgen Elk Rescue Final


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Pgdaigle filmed a group of locals rescuing an elk out of a frozen patch of icy water in Hebgen Lake, which is located in Southwest Montana, on May 3. He says the elk fell through a weak part of the ice. He was the first person to notice the elk in the water. He says since he was a lot lighter in weight, he felt confident enough to walk on the ice towards the animal. ‘Realizing we could reach her, ropes were sourced and a gentleman with a life vest, ladder, and a hardness worked his way out to the animal,’ he explained. Once they got the elk out of the water, they guided it back towards the forest with a ladder so that it would not run back onto the frozen lake.
