Horse Rescue - Len Waters Estate

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) firefighters have been saddled with the responsibility of rescuing a horse, which found itself in a 'night-mare' situation in Sydney's south-west this morning.

Shortly before 8am, the animal fell into a six-feet deep truck washing pit in a small industrial estate on Cowpasture Road.

FRNSW crews were assisted by a 'neigh-bourhood' vet and trainers, as they worked out a plan to free it.

Technical rescue firefighters moved quickly to build a ramp using material normally carried on their specialist vehicles. This allowed for the animal to be carefully led out of the pit.

FRNSW understands the horse is now in a 'stable' condition.
