WATCH: 'Skating' calf is rescued!

Large parts of America have been shivering in snowy weather, and in Oklahoma a calf became trapped on a frozen pond.

People living nearby noticed the animal sliding around on the ice and raised the alarm.

The calf was blown towards the shore by the draught from a rescue helicopter sent to free him. Once he was near the edge of the pond he scrambled to safety.

Watch his amazing escape here!
