KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/CNN) - A baby deer was trapped in a storm drain, and Kansas City residents came up with a plan to rescue the fawn.

The fawn was almost swept away by rushing waters, and three residents who could not leave her, climbed down into the drain to get her. In her fears, the fawn provided some resistance, but was ultimately rescued.

Caregivers at the nature center say the fawn suffered hoof injuries to her tender feet. 

"All four of her hoofs have been worn away on the bottom due to the rocks concrete she was on, abrasions and open sores on all her hoofs," says Kimberly Hess.

The fawn will be kept and fed for the next three to four months, and then eventually sent back into the wild through a natural process.
