NORWELL, Mass. - Fifteen horses, some of which suffered superficial injuries, have been rescued from a Norwell barn after a portion of the roof collapsed.
Ethelene Devers, owner of the Norwell barn, said the collapse was discovered at about 7 a.m. Monday when several people went to feed the horses and clean the barn.
There were no human injuries.
The horses trapped inside were sedated and brought out.
Many of the horses were trapped in an area where the roof did not collapse.
Devers said snow had been removed from an older portion of the roof, but the collapse occurred in a newer area.
