A young swan that frozen in ice on a lake in Spotsylvania was freed by fire and rescue personnel over the weekend.
They worked with Animal Control to fashion a safe floattaion device to get close and make sure it was okay. They then used a high powered cannon to spray warm water under the young swan to free it. Rescuers say it looked back at the group at it scurried away. Spotsylvania Sheriff Roger Harris says this is one of the things that public service is all about.
