This is the bizarre moment firefighters winched a horse to safety – after the animal slipped on an ice patch and plunged into a SWIMMING POOL.

The five-year-old chestnut was stranded in icy waters in the freak accident when it toppled into the 6ft-deep outdoor pool at around 8.50am on Thursday (14/12).

Ten firefighters spent two hours pumping the water out before a Technical Rescue Unit was brought in to winch the soaking animal to safety.
