There probably aren’t too many opportunities for heroism in Chisago County, Minnesota. Deputy Scotty Finnegan, however, was in the right place at the right time when he came to the rescue of four women, trapped on a unicorn float in the middle of a lake. They had become caught in the weeds, which were so thick that their paddles proved useless. In an ending befitting any story involving unicorns, their knight in shining armor arrived to save the day, pulling them toward safety with a rope.
“With a handful of laughs and some mad rescue roping skills they were pulled back to the dock!” the Chisago County Sheriff’s office tweeted.
Driving by a local lake we observed a bunch of women in a 🌈🦄 stuck in the weeds…Yes a rainbow unicorn… With a handful of laughs and some mad rescue roping skills they were pulled back to the dock! #wherestheglitterpic.twitter.com/qCyhfJqAa9
The women escaped the ordeal unharmed, and so did the rainbow unicorn float.
This isn’t the first instance of mischief caused by a unicorn float this year. In May, a girl was rescued by the Coastguard in Scotland after her unicorn float drifted out to sea. It’s worthwhile to note that inflatables are generally not designed for the ocean, so it’s probably a good idea to keep them in calmer waters.
