According to the video's uploader, her friend was in the area to collect data about hydraulic fracturing when he spotted a young deer trapped in a water-holding pond.
The good Samaritan then jumped in to help the fawn who couldn't climb the pool's slippery, tarp-covered banks himself.
Understandably, people are kind of freaking out.
"[A]ll hail our new shirtless hero!" writes one website. "He's probably collected a few hearts by now too," writes another.
"Saving baby deers in a frack pond," says the fawn's unnamed rescuer in the video. All in a day's work for a science hunk.
