The curious calf had wandered into the backyard from a neighboring field and simply jumped into the pool, unaware that there was no escape. While waiting for a rescue team to arrive, property owner Martin Bigge and his neighbor Jon Royce used a lasso to hold the cow's head above water, saving the animal from drowning. After the technical rescue unit pulled the bovine intruder out of the pool, the calf was handed over to its owner.
