Firefighters said they were “saddled with the responsibility” of rescuing a horse which found itself in a 'night-mare' situation in Sydney, Australia, on June 20.
Shortly before 8 am, the animal fell into a 1m80-deep truck washing pit in a small industrial estate. The rescue team was assisted by a 'neigh-bourhood' vet and trainers, as they worked out a plan to free it.
In a Facebook post, the rescue team explained how they built a ramp using material carried in their specialist vehicles. The horse is now in a stable condition.
