Md. Crews Rig System to Rescue Horse

Prince George's County technical rescue teams put their skills to the test during the snow Thursday to help a horse.

Crews from the St. Joes Tech Rescue Station is less than a half mile from the barn in Springdale.

They set up a rigging system to pull the horse to a standing position, firefighters said.

The horse had become so exhausted from trying to free itself from the deep snow it collapsed.  There is a vet on the scene.  

Firefighters set up a rigging system to help lift the horse upright.
