News 12 caught up with 12-year-old Anthony Masaitis and his father who filmed the rescue.
"It was like crazy, because if it went into the deep end, I was thinking about jumping inside the pool, but luckily it stayed in the shallow end and it was to the side, so I was able to grab it and take it out," said Masaitis.
Thankfully, the fawn reunited with its mother a couple of hours later.
