One of the worst scenarios would have to be seeing someone you love, even your favorite pet, in trouble and feeling powerless while trying to rescue them. For one farmer in Poland, Marek Słodkowski, this turned out to be a reality.
His beautiful horse named Freedom accidentally fell into a maintenance pit inside Słodkowski’s barn in Poland and was stuck there for over 12 hours. After the discovery, he tried to stuff the pit with hay so that she could continually compact it with her feet and get extra footing but it didn’t work.
She was exhausted and her condition was weakening to the point of her almost giving up. He then decided to call the fire department. When a crew arrived, they tried to lift her out and you’ll be surprised by their efforts.
