Horse dead in Colesville barn collapse
Montgomery County rescuers spent several hours trying to save a horse and a mule that became trapped when a Colesville area barn collapsed on them Wednesday morning, officials said.
The horse didn't make it. Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Assistant Chief Scott Graham said that by the time the animal was extricated its injuries were so severe its owner decided to have it put down.
The mule was shaken, but seems to be doing okay, Graham said.
The rescue attempt began after responders were alerted to the collapse at Layhill and Norbeck roads at 7:50 a.m. and lasted about 4 1/2 hours.
