Bam Margera’s pregnant wife made a valiant attempt to rescue a young deer stuck in a pond on their Chester County property, but the animal died by the time firefighters arrived to help.

The West Chester native, who rose to fame on his skateboard while appearing in MTV’s Jackass, posted photos on Instagram of his wife, Nicole Boyd, trying to rescue the deer Thursday evening, the Daily Local reported.

“A deer stuck in my pond,” Margera posted about the incident, which happened about 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. The photos show Boyd cradling the head of the deer while standing in water above her knees.

Rescue crews from First West Chester and Fame Fire companies responded along with Good Fellowship ambulance and West Chester police after Boyd became stuck, the paper reported.

The deer didn’t make it, said Mike McDonald, Chief of West Chester Fire Department when reached by phone Friday.

Rescuers help Nicole Boyd, wife of celebrity Bam Margera, after she attempted to rescue a deer that had become stuck in a pond on their Chester County property.

“It was deceased by the time we got there,” he said.

The young deer was probably in the last moments of its life when Boyd attempted the rescue. McDonald did not know how long the deer struggled in the muddy pond, he said.

“She tried. She gave it the effort,” he said about Boyd’s failed attempt that ended up with her mired in waist-deep mud.

“We saved her, though,”McDonald said. “She is safe. She is fine.”

Some of Margera’s 1.2 million followers weighed in on the situation.

“So glad you got to the poor little guy in time <3,” Nikkih129 posted.

“Bet that deer was very happy to have you guys stumble upon it to help it through it’s unfortunate event!” dylanborn posted.

“launch it across the pond in a shopping cart!” lucatso added.

The deceased deer was turned over to the West Chester police. According to protocol, the state Game commission would be called in to dispose of the carcass, McDonald said.
