Video: RNLI crew rescues stranded horse from flooded river


A young horse was dramatically rescued from a flooded river in Co Tipperary.

The yearling got into difficulty when it fell into Nenagh River.

A member of the public contacted Valentia Coast Guard after seeing the foal being swept downstream into Lough Derg.

Lough Derg RNLI received the call to assist and launched a lifeboat in an effort to save the horse.

Crew members encouraged the horse to swim towards shore by wading into the water and herding him towards shallow water.
