Video has captured the moment a deer took a dip in an indoor pool after smashing through the window during a children's swimming lesson. Footage shows the animal fleeing from what appeared to be employees and leaping into the pool in an effort to escape.

The pool was evacuated as the incident happened during children's swimming lessons on February 25. The deer was coaxed out of the door 15 minutes later, unharmed but soaked. The Vollmer Center, in Canada, was forced to close for two days for cleaning.
