Horse pulled out of sinkhole by firefighters after becoming completely submerged underground

Incredible footage captures the moment a horse was pulled from a sinkhole in Yorkshire by a team of firemen.

The stallion had become completely submerged underground in the four-foot deep hole in Mirfield on Saturday, 7 January.

A crew was sent out from West Yorkshire Fire Service and used a digger to carve out a shallow trench to start their rescue mission.

They then tied a rope around the 27-year-old horse, named Prince, and managed to safely free him from his predicament.
