Firefighters in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona were called into action on Saturday afternoon to rescue a horse who had become stuck in a swimming pool in suburban Phoenix.
According to AZ Central, a homeowner called the Mesa Fire and Medical Department in at about 2:30 p.m. saying that his horse had fallen into his swimming pool and couldn’t get out.
When firefighters arrived at the scene, they found the horse stuck in the shallow end of the pool. A veterinarian had to tranquilize the animal before the firefighters could pull it out.
A video posted online by the Mesa Fire and Medical Department shows firefighters pulling the animal out of the pool using straps.
The horse was then laid down on the grass. Mesa Fire Captain Forrest Smith said the animal was not injured.
