Horse rescued from swimming pool

A horse had to be rescued from a swimming pool after it bolted and fell in when his rider hopped off to answer a call of nature.
It took 11 firefighters and wildlife experts more than an hour to haul the terrified stallion – called Coco – from the open air pool, in Wels, Austria.
"The horse wasn’t tied up and he just took off. It crashed through a hedge and went head over hooves into the pool," explained one firefighter.
"He was very frightened but just couldn’t seem to haul himself out of there so we waited until he was calm and hauled him free," he added.
