We all know a hot tub can feel quite relaxing, but in this case, it was also a lifesaver.

According to the story by Indiana station RTV6, cattle farmer Dean Gangwer found a newborn calf in a snowbank. His temperature was low and he was barely breathing ā€” Gangwer knew he had to act quickly.

He hoisted the calf into the back of his truck, drove him to the house and hopped in the hot tub. Gangwer jumped in fully dressed, supported the calf's head and bathed with him for about half an hour.

The result? The calf, now named Leroy, is healthy and doing well. Now that's what we call a happy ending.
