Horse Rescued from Sinkhole in Cle Elum

KING 5

Firefighters and an excavation company rescued a horse that had fallen into a sinkhole in Cle Elum, WA, Tuesday.

The horse, named Copper, was found stuck in the hole on Brook Lane.

Ladders and plywood were placed on one side of the hole to keep dirt and rocks from falling on Copper, Lt. Crystal Campbell with Kittitas County Fire said. Always Excavating Ltd. dug the soil around the horse to install a makeshift ramp.

KCFD said on Facebook that with the help of a veterinarian, neighbors, and the owner, Copper is safe and sound.
