KXLY's Deis Saves Baby Panda From Drowning

KXLY Sports Director Derek Deis, while fishing on a small lake south of Rockford, heroically saved Doug, the baby panda bear missing from the Washington State University Veterinary School since Tuesday, after Doug entered the water in search of food.

In a feat of strength, Deis rescued the 400-lb. bear in five feet of water and drug him safely to the shore.  Emergency crews quickly responded, after Deis used his iPhone to contact them before entering the water.
