The rescue happened in Island Estates, at a home Mike Andrews was showing.
While showing clients a home in Island Estates in Palm Coast last week, local real estate agent Mike Andrews saw something small moving in the pool in the backyard.
As he approached, he realized it was a baby deer struggling to keep her head above the water.
The mother deer was waiting on the other side of the fence, but took off when Andrews got close to the fawn, he said.
“She came close enough so I could get her out, then she basically just collapsed on the floor, on the concrete there,” Andrews said. "I was petting her, and she regained her strength after a little while.”
Andrews picked up the fawn once she was able to stand on her own and walked her over to the lot next door where he saw the mother run to.
Within a couple minutes, the mother returned and the fawn was reunited.
Andrews felt a sigh of relief. He said he had showed up to this listing appointment in a somewhat of a bad mood because the client before stood him up. But now he realized that everything happens for a reason, as he wouldn’t have been at this house at the same time had that appointment not been a "no show," he said.
