LOGAN, Ohio (AP) -- Contractors working on an Ohio house mounted an early-morning rescue on Friday to save a horse that had fallen into an ice-cold swimming pool.
The Logan Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/tX7UeP ) that a family working on the siding of Gail Larkin's Logan, Ohio home called her to let her know a horse had fallen through the cover of her swimming pool, which had been closed for the winter.
Larkin says the horse had ice crystals on its face and was only able to hold itself up by its front legs.
The workers used Larkin's cane to keep the horse's bobbing head above water and when it finally was able to leave the pool an approaching fire truck sent it running.
The horse was later found at its owner's home.
