Nelson fire crews save a fallen horse
4:35pm 25th November 2014
You've heard about firefighters being called out to cats down when they are stuck in trees - but now a Nelson fire crew can add a bigger animal to their list of rescues.
They were called to stables in Burnley, on Woodend Road, after a horse had become trapped after falling.
The complex rescue operation took around 3 hours with a further specialist Rope Access Team from Lytham St Anne's also attending with additional heavy lifting equipment.
With the presence of a local vet there to monitor the horses wellbeing the animal was eventually removed from the stable and assisted to its feet where it was given time to come round from the effects of a calming sedative.
