DICKSON COUNTY, Tenn. — A horse became trapped when a barn collapsed on top of him but Tennessee first responders came to the rescue.

When the crews arrived, they saw a pile of wooden beams and roofing. There was a small space within the collapsed structure where a horse called Cody was trapped, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

The crews used struts to stabilize the structure and then began removing pieces of the barn to create an opening.

When there was a large enough opening for Cody to slip through, two members led the horse out of the barn and into a field.
