    Horse trapped underground for 24hrs, secs from mercy death - then farmer has idea

    There is a video of the moment at the link and it's heartwarming.

    A horse in Huddersfield, UK, fell through into a concrete chamber buried deep underground in a field. Fire fighters couldn't lift it out with sedation, and a vet couldn't sedate it in such a tiny space.

    A mercy killing was the only answer. Owners had already been informed their poor horse was about to die, when the landowner had a brainwave - dig the horse out through the side. Out came his digger and, some time later, catch the moment.....

    You may touch the dust but please don't write in it.
    The way I see it is: if you are making a decision that will affect someone else's life, prepare for public scrutiny.

    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.
