Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Firefighters in China used a crane to hoist an ox by the horns after it fell into a hole that was too deep for it to easily climb out.

A video of the rescue Friday in Nanchang, Jiangxi Province, shows the firefighters tying a rope around the horns of the large ox, which is standing upright in the hole.

The firefighters used a crane to lift the animal by the horns until its hooves could reach solid ground.

The rescuers said the ox was not injured.
