Take about good people! In Tyler, Texas, two beautiful souls saved a baby deer drowning at Lake Tyler. 

Brian Ballard, and his wife, stumbled upon the poor fawn living lifeless in the water. 

"We are pulling into the channel which is no wake I saw something in the water I thought it was a dead fish. I pull beside it and looked over and saw it was a deer," Ballard told KETK News.

When another person, Ashton Byrd, saw what Ballard was doing, he also sprang into action!  

"If you would have seen it it was clearly dead but it had life in its eyes so I killed the boat and took off my shirt and jumped over to their boat," said Ashton Byrd. "They had been patting it, giving it breaths so it started to crying itself back to life."

Ballard and Byrd, both took turns giving the fawn CPR until suddenly, he came back to life. Local wildlife rehabilitator who is caring for the fawn, now named Baylade, says he is getting stronger and stronger every hour. 

A huge thank you to Ballard and Byrd for your kindness and never giving up on this fawn. You both are heroes.
