Lifeboat Crew Save Horse That Bolted a Mile Out to Sea

A lifeboat crew came to the aid of a horse that had bolted over a mile out into the Atlantic Ocean from a beach in Donegal, Ireland, on Monday, June 29.

The RNLI said a crew responded to reports of a horse in the water off Murvagh Beach near Donegal town shortly after 5:40 pm Monday afternoon.

Footage released by the RNLI Bundoran Lifeboat Station shows the rescue boat approaching the horse.

The RNLI said it took crew members nearly an hour to entice the animal back to dry land, where its owner was anxiously waiting. Credit: RNLI Bundoran Lifeboat Station via Storyful
