Volunteer firefighters save horse's life

Friday, January 8, 2010 - 3:26pm

Volunteer firefighters in the town of Slaughter braved freezing temperatures to save “Clue,” a 1200 pound horse after he fell into a local creek.

Clue’s owner says the horse has bad eyes and may have accidentally fallen in.

It’s believed Clue was stuck in the creek for hours before a 9-1-1 call sent the Slaughter Volunteer Fire department jumping in after him.

Firefighters say it was a rescue unlike any other.

"You hear about firefighters getting cats out of trees or dogs from under porches but you never hear about us getting a horse out of a creek” says Colby Marks.

Clue's owner says the horse is doing just fine.
