Dramatic horse rescue from watertank
A horse is lucky to have escaped without injury after falling into an underground water tank north of Sydney yesterday afternoon.
At 6.20pm on Monday, emergency services were called to a property in Wybong, after reports a horse had fallen into the tank and had become trapped.
A team comprising the NSW RFS, NSW SES and local police officers - along with the help of an excavator - worked for more than five hours to successfully free the animal to safety without injury.
The horse was treated at the scene by a local council vet and is believed to be without harm.
The animal is now in the care of the vet for ongoing assessment.
