Firefighters Back Home After Helping During South Texas Flood

A half dozen Fort Worth firefighters are back home after a dramatic rescue of a horse in south Texas flooding.  The team was working flooding along the Rio Grande when they got the call that a couple horses had been stranded.  Battalion Chief Richard Ward and his Texas Task Force One team led one horse to safety then rigged a couple boats with a cradle sling.    He says once the exhausted horse was in the cradle she slumped down for the ride to shore.  It took more than 4 hours to complete the rescue.  Ward says he’s never experienced such a rescue in his 33 years with the  Fort Worth fire department.
