Real life Bambi rescue: deer rescued from frozen lake
THREE stricken deer were thrown a lifeline after being towed off frozen lake by a cop on a hovercraft. James Kenison and his father Doug drove a quarter of a mile onto frozen Albert Lea Lake in Minnesota to save the stranded animals. The pair, who run a hovercraft tour company, tied ropes round the tired deers and dragged them to shore. The compassionate rescue was captured on camera by James, who said he believed the deer had been out on the lake for days after being unable to walk on the slick ice.

Olympic Gold Medalist Jessica Ennis Gives Her Support to ParalympicGB
British Airways has teamed up with Olympic athletes Jessica Ennis, Louis Smith, Greg Rutherford and Zoe Smith who all give their messages of support to the ParalympicGB squad, coinciding with the kick off of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
British Airways created the video with the theme 'we are alongside you…' inspired by the definition of Paralympics games which many people are unaware of. Its origin is from the Greek prefix 'Para' which translates as 'beside' or 'alongside', as the Paralympic Games run in parallel to the Olympic Games.
