Chicago police rescued a deer from the Chicago River while patrolling in a boat Friday morning in the Loop.

The police Marine Unit was passing the 400 block of South Lower Waker Drive about 8:30 a.m. when they noticed a deer “splashing around” in the river, according to police spokeswoman Karie James.

They grabbed the deer from the water and brought it to shore, James said.

Once on land, the deer ran off and appeared to be uninjured.

On Thursday, a man was rescued not far down the river at State Street and Wacker Drive. A woman walking her dog nearby jumped in the water and swam him to safety, police said. The man was hospitalized in critical condition.
