STARK, Minn. (AP) — It was not a fairy tale, but a rescue on a Minnesota lake did involve a rainbow unicorn.

A sheriff’s deputy and a reserve deputy from the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office spotted a group of five women on a large, inflatable rainbow unicorn floating on Fish Lake on Saturday.

KMSP-TV reports the deputies pulled their squad car over and asked the women for a photo, but noticed the raft was stuck in weeds.

One deputy threw a rope to the women while the other recorded a video . The sheriff’s office tweeted: “With a handful of laughs and some mad rescue roping skills, they were pulled back to the dock!”
