Gina Silva, a reporter from Fox 11 News, saved a horse stuck in a small crevice along the wall of a stable while it was trying to escape the deadly fires spreading near Sylmar.

She informed others about the situation through her Twitter, on December 5, 2017, according to Fox 5 News.

The name of the steed was Kenny, and he tried to run after the raging fires reached towards his stables, according to AWM. The journalist noticed the horse’s teeth stuck in a hole.

Silva, intent on rescuing the horse, persuaded her team to help her save the horse, but they were not successful in doing so because they did have enough people and power to free the horse.


The urgent situation was aired live on Fox 11 News, and people stepped forward to help. The LA County Fire released a small team to assist in the rescue.

Silva's tweet regarding the situation also garnered enough attention that people came to the place where the 23-year-old horse was painfully stuck, AWM reported.

The rescuers worked in unison to break the wall down, and a veterinarian tranquilized Kenny to calm him down as the rescue was bound to get difficult.


The horse was freed after the team's efforts and was then straight away taken to evacuation center nearby, reported Fox 5 News. The horse’s condition improved drastically after the rescuers treated the animal.

A similar incident rescue operation was carried out in India. A video uploaded by Animal Aid Unlimited on YouTube on November 25, 2017, showed three puppies stuck in solid tar, unable to move, for hours. They were scared and feared for their lives.

They were later recused by a team of the Animal Aid Unlimited after they received the information about the stuck puppies.
