Dramatic Moment Horse Rescued From Ditch By Helicopter
A horse has been dramatically rescued from a construction trench by helicopter - after becoming trapped. The large white horse named Misty had wandered off a nearby property and fallen into the hole. She was discovered by locals, who quickly phoned the Los Angeles Fire Department to help free her. It was determined that a helicopter lift operation was in order as the distressed horse reacted badly to attempts to dig a ramp for her to climb out of. A local heavy-lifting chopper was scrambled. Misty was sedated, blindfolded, strapped into an Anderson Sling and then air lifted to safety.
