Firefighters in Australia used a sling and an excavator to hoist a horse that fell into a water tank and was unable to climb back out.
Fire and Rescue New South Wales said a crew from Narellan responded Thursday to Belimbla Park, where a 5-year-old horse named Jester had fallen into a water tank.
Officials said in a Facebook post that the horse’s fall was “softened by water which had half-filled the tank.”
A crew from Liverpool brought slings and harness for the horse and firefighters borrowed an excavator from a neighboring property to hoist the horse to safety.
“We understand Jester is doing well,” the post said.
