Crewe firefighters rescued a small cow from the River Weaver in Church Minshull.
A fire engine and rope unit from Knutsford joined a fire engine from Crewe at the incident behind The Smithy, on Sunday, July 6.
One of Brian Charlesworth's cows had strayed in to the Weaver and was struggling to survive.
Brent Gray from West View got into the river to keep the animals head above water whilst the emergency services arrived. The cow was handed back into the care of Brian once rescued.
The Higher Elms farmer and members of the public were already at the scene when the service arrived.
