A group of women in Minnesota had to be pulled to safety by sheriff's deputies Saturday after they got stuck on a lake on a rainbow unicorn float for hours.

Deputy Scotty Finnegan and his partner, Deputy Dawn De Steno, of the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office were patrolling along Fish Lake when he “observed the large inflatable and immediately began to laugh,” Finnegan told BuzzFeed News.

He said the four individuals were “not making the best progress towards shore.”

They noticed that the women had paddles, but were struggling to paddle their way through weeds in the lake, so they pulled over to assist.

Finnegan said the women were floating on the unicorn “for a couple of hours” that day.

The officers determined the best way to rescue them would be to toss them a line and pull them in. The sheriff’s office recorded and shared the moment online.

Driving by a local lake we observed a bunch of women in a 🌈🦄 stuck in the weeds...Yes a rainbow unicorn... With a handful of laughs and some mad rescue roping skills they were pulled back to the dock! #wherestheglitter https://t.co/qCyhfJqAa9

Some outlets have wrongfully reported that there were five women rescued. Finnegan clarified to BuzzFeed News that there were only four women on the unicorn float itself. “The fifth woman from the group was heavily entertained from the dock fishing and poking fun at her friends,” he said.
