DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene with a holiday a role reversal. Rudolph, with his red nose, usually guides Santa and his sleigh, which made the scene in Oregon a bit jarring. A little deer got caught on a frozen lake, slipping helplessly. A local firefighter came to the rescue, by coincidence or not, dressed in a red suit and using a red sled that glides over ice. The deer was nudged to safe ground by this heroic firefighter, who will go down in history - how all the reindeer must love him. It's MORNING EDITION.
