Man saves foal trapped between bridge slats while mare looks on helplessly (video)

A kind-hearted individual rescued the little horse from a bridge as its mother looks on anxiously.

According to The Dodo, the baby horse was stuck on a bridge until a man came along to save it.

The man, who was now hailed as a hero, was driving down a road when he spotted the poor little horse. It had gotten stuck between the wooden beams of a bridge, weak and terrified.

Refusing to leave the horse there, he immediately got out and took a closer look at the situation.

As he walked on to the bridge, he noticed the little horse's mother looks on helplessly. It seemed as though the baby was begging for his mom to help him.
