    Warning: Video may be disturbing to some viewers.

    Crews tried to rescue three deer that fell through ice on a Massachusetts reservoir on Wednesday, according to police.

    Authorities received calls of deer in Cambridge Reservoir in Waltham sometime around 11 a.m.

    NBC10 Boston's Sky Ranger helicopter was over the scene, where three deer struggled in the water to get on frozen parts of the reservoir.

    However, despite the efforts of Waltham fire crews, the deer were unable to make it back to shore and a decision was made to let nature take its course.

    A rescuer also fell into the water after ice broke beneath him, but another rescuer was able to pull him back to shore. The rescuer who fell through the ice is expected to be OK.
