This risky rescue could have gone wrong in a number of ways, but the first responders were able to save a horse that had walked onto thin ice without injuring the horse or themselves.
On 12/13/17, at approximately 9:30am, Macomb County Sheriff Deputies were called to a residence in Ray Township for a horse that had fallen into an ice covered pond. Deputies responded and attempted to guide the horse out with ropes only to find that the horse could not get its legs above the ice. The Ray Township Fire Department also responded. Police and fire worked together to break up the ice and guide the horse out. During the rescue, a deputy fell through the ice trying to attach a rope to the horse’s bridle. He was quickly pulled from the pond and continued to help the horse. The owners were grateful and horse was checked out by its veterinarian. Both the horse and the deputy were uninjured.
