JANESVILLE, Iowa (AP) — A parent used a chair to guide a deer back outside a northeast Iowa school after it jumped through a window to get in.

The deer broke through a window in the superintendent’s office Monday afternoon at the Janesville Consolidated School District school building in Janesville.

Superintendent BJ Meaney says the parent was picking up his child when the deer broke in. Meaney credited the parent, Josh Smith, with quick thinking in grabbing the chair to guide the deer out of the building.

Meaney says classes went on as scheduled, and workers cleaned up the broken glass and boarded up the window.
