Footage from a body camera shows a horse being saved by police after a fire broke out in a barn.

Two police officers in Hilltown Township, Pennsylvania, did a great job saving a horse from fire. A body camera of one of the officers was used to record the rescue, and it shows how hard the brave men worked to save the animal.

There was a fire on a farm outside the city of Hilltown Township on Thursday. The Hilltown Township Police Department got a call about it. In just a few minutes, two police officers, Matthew Reiss and Cristian Hanus were there to help. It was already safe for everyone at the farm, except for Phoebe’s horse.

One of the farm’s workers told him that a horse was still being held there. As soon as he heard that, officer Reiss jumped into action to free the animal. Officer Hanus stayed behind. A horse trainer at a farm helped them get Phoebe out of the fire. However, it wasn’t easy because the horse was scared and confused and didn’t want to get out. The officers had to pull him out!

“She was scared, but the cops were great. They jumped right in.” Lena Obernesser, a riding instructor at the farm, told CBSNews. In the video, I was in awe. Thank goodness they were there.

The good news is that both the horse and his rescuer could make it through, only with a few minor injuries. The officers on their first animal rescue mission said that the adrenaline was what made them go straight to the barn that had been set on fire.

“It was an adrenaline rush like no other,” officer Reiss said. “Both he and I were hurt very little, and we were out there so good job!” The officer said: “The adrenaline was going.” This will be one of the most talked-about events in the history books.”
