Rescue crews save horse stuck in cement feeding trough in Goshen
GOSHEN - Several fire departments and emergency crews rescued a horse that got stuck in a feeding trough Sunday.
Crews responded to 700 Mill Village Road South around 8:27 a.m.
The horse had gotten stuck in a cement trough roughly roughly 30 inches wide, 2 feet deep and 10 feet long.
It took crews about a half-hour to free the horse and the owner did not know how long it had been in the trough before calling the fire department.
The crews placed lifting straps under the horse to pull it out of the trough.
Equipment help from the Newport and Lempster fire departments, Goshen Highway Department and Stones Auto Body also was requested.
One person was taken to the hospital with injuries and another was treated at the scene for a shoulder injury.
A veterinarian from Claremont Animal Hospital also treated some minor injuries to the horse.
