A NY man and his dog are being credited for rescuing an exhausted fawn floating in Long Island Sound not just once, but twice.

The video shows the heroic Storm toss the deer onto the sand; the deer moves, struggling to stand up, and Storm grabs it in his mouth and bounds up on the rocky shore.

"Storm is trying to save this baby deer", Freeley can be heard saying.

Storm jumped in and ended up dragging a fawn back to shore. The fawn got spooked and ran back to the water.

"And then he started nudging it, and started pulling it to make sure she was going to be OK I guess", Freeley told WCBS.

Freeley called nonprofit, Strong Island Animal Rescue League, and led Frankie Floridia, the organization's co-founder, to where they had left the fawn. That began rescue round two.

Once on land, the fawn ran off but soon collapsed, Freeley said.

"The second rescue was a lot of anxiety", Floridia said.

He credited the hard part to his partner Erica Kutzing.

The deer was carried to the rescue's van.

"It was weak, covered in ticks, had an eye injury and some abrasions", he said.

The vet took the fawn to her auto, and the animal is being treated.
