Emergency personnel were involved in a delicate rescue Sunday.

Just after 12:30 p.m., the Vernon Fire Department and the Conservation Officer Service were notified of a deer trapped in the middle of ice on Okanagan Lake, near Kin Beach.

While the deer had managed to get out on to the lake, it was finding it challenging to get off the ice surface.

Emergency personnel approached the deer and were able to get it safely to shore.

The condition of the deer is not known.
