SAN RAFAEL, CA -- It was a rescue that took a lot of time and a lot of strength. This was the scene out of California.

Officials with the San Rafael fire department received a call yesterday afternoon that a horse fell into a 25-foot well.

By the time crews arrived, the horse was agitated and appeared to be tired from trying to get out of the well.

After several hours and a group effort, firefighters were able to get the horse out of the well.

The good news, the horse was not injured.

Officials say there appeared to be a cover over the well and it broke when the horse stood on top of it.
