WATCH: 'Skating' calf is rescued!

Calf on ice in Oklahoma

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

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!
