Houston emergency personnel rescue pony from storm drain

HOUSTON (AP) — Emergency responders have rescued a pony that was found trapped in a storm drain in southwest Houston.

KPRC-TV reports firefighters sedated the pony during the rescue Wednesday afternoon during cloudy conditions.

A Houston police officer who had stopped to check on a vehicle told KPRC that he noticed a nearby manhole cover was off, heard a noise and realized a horse was several feet down in the drain.

Emergency crews cut open the concrete surrounding the drain, then hoisted the brown-and-white pony out.

The horse drank some water and was strong enough to walk, even stopping to graze on some grass along a sidewalk while being led away by law enforcement personnel.

Authorities didn’t immediately release further details.
