Airbags used to lift mare in Britain

A fire crew in Britain was called to help a mare stand after she got into bother in her stall.

Firefighters from Eccleston, part of Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, used airbags normally used to lift cars to raise the 10-year-old mare named Mo to her feet.

Mo had rocked herself into a depression and, deep in her straw bed, was unable to get up.

Conventional lifting gear was unsuitable because of the cramped conditions, so firefighters improvised successfully with the car-lifting airbags.

Mo was OK after her ordeal.
