Crews rescue horse stuck in mud

THE ACREAGE, Fla. - Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews have freed a horse that was stuck in the mud Monday morning in The Acreage.

A tweet just after 9 a.m. from PBCFR showed about 10 people huddled around the horse in an effort to save its life.

It's unclear how the horse became stuck.

At about 9:30 a.m., crews sedated the horse and pulled it out.

The horse was safely out of the mud, sedation has worn off and he is being evaluated by a veterinarian.
