Horse Rescue

On Sunday, November 12, 2017, Cobb Firefighters were dispatched to a horse that had fallen into an in-ground swimming pool. One mature horse was located in the shallow end of a covered pool. The homeowner stated that he witnessed the horse being chased by a dog and the horse jumped the pool fence and tried to walk on the pool cover when he fell through the cover. Large Animal Rescue Group was called to the scene as well. Crews pumped the water out of the pool and built a 16 foot ramp and laid into the pool. Several ropes were secured to the horse to walk him up the ramp. Thankfully, the horse was removed from the pool with no injuries.
