Horse rescued from pool at suburban Phoenix home

The Associated Press

MESA, Ariz. (AP) A horse in suburban Phoenix needed rescuing after it led itself to water and did more than just drink.

Mesa firefighters say the horse was wandering outside of its pen Saturday when the animal somehow fell into the backyard swimming pool and became stuck.

Mesa Fire Capt. Forrest Smith says firefighters, with the assistance of a veterinarian, tranquilized the horse before pulling it out using several straps.

Smith says the horse was not injured.
