A horse saved from a pool and a chiropractor arrested for drugs in this week’s edition.
Horse saved from pool
MARSHFIELD, Mass. — A 10-year-old horse named Holly Star has been saved after falling into a backyard pool in North Marshfield.
The Marshfield Fire Department was called to a house on Wednesday afternoon. The horse had fallen into the deep end of the home’s backyard pool, plunging through its cover.
It took 25 rescuers to save the horse, which has a stable at the home.
Firefighters removed the pool cover and helped the horse into the shallow end of the pool while keeping its head above water. The Plymouth County Tech Rescue team used special harnesses to get the horse out.
The horse was in the pool’s water – then a frigid 44 degrees – for about an hour. A local veterinarian responded and sedated the horse, which appears to be in good health.
