A horse in Valdemaqueda, Spain found itself needing a little bit of rescuing. The poor horse had become trapped in a deep pit, with water coming up almost to its face. Firefighters were called in for the rescue, and after hours of strategizing, what they came up with was an air-lift harness. The horse was saved via helicopter! Luckily, the animal wasn't injured.
Next, another horse and its rider found themselves also trapped in a pit. The incident happened in Lepe City, Spain. Police arrived on the scene, and they dug out a ramp after a multi-hour rescue effort. Police are investigating the incident, curious why the pit wasn't gated off or clearly marked.
