New Jersey... the Cape May police department has a new hero. Video was released Wednesday of one of their officers saving a man from a burning truck. You can see him pulling out the driver just as flames engulf the vehicle. He even went back a second time to make sure there were no passengers. The driver of the pick-up is hospitalized in critical but stable condition...

Nevada... a turkey was trying to cross the road with other officers standing by in case of "fowl" play. An officer dressed up in a big, shiny turkey suit and once the turkey set foot on the crosswalk, if any cars sped through before he could cross the road, they were pulled over and given a $324 ticket. Officers say 46 pedestrians this year have been killed on roadways just in this part of Las Vegas...

Iowa... an unusual rescue in Clear Lake after two deer get stranded on the ice. Firefighters say the stubborn animals wouldn't budge, so, they had to get proactive and ended up dragging the deer off the ice. Eventually, everyone made it to dry land safely and the deer took off, none the worse for the wear. And with that, we all just need to chill out on this USA Update.
