March 21 (UPI) -- Firefighters in New York came to the rescue of a horse that fell into a resident's backyard pool and became entangled in the cover.

The Bohemia Fire Department said crews responded alongside the Suffolk County Police Department when a horse apparently attempted to walk on the cover of a resident's pool and fell through to the water underneath.

The horse was guided up the stairs in the shallow end of the pool. The equine did not appear to be injured.
