People at Cherrydale Point Plaza, a shopping mall in South Carolina, got a surprise when a deer ran through the glass door of an Old Navy store. The deer got stuck between the doors at the entrance for a short time.

"I saw the deer was trapped," said Eric Lasker, who was walking past the shop. "It was all glass. There were two sets of glass doors in the shop's entranceway, and the deer was trying hard to get out."
