Indiana farmer saves freezing baby cow with hot tub swim

0

A central Indiana farmer jumped into a hot tub with a shivering baby cow to save the calf’s life.

Carroll County farmer Dean Gangwer tells WRTV-TV he thinks one of his cows gave birth in the snow and that he found the barely breathing newborn in a snowbank this week.

The third-generation farmer says he decided the quickest way to warm up the calf, named Leroy, would be to use his hot tub. Gangwer says he “jumped in fully dressed and held Leroy up so he didn’t drown.” Gangwer then took the calf inside and wrapped him in electric blankets.

Leroy is recovering and has started to nurse.
