Firefighters were working to hoist a horse to safety after it took a tumble down a canyon in Sylmar, 26 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
The call came in at 4:27 p.m. PT from Little Tujunga Canyon Road and Marek Motorway, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Two helicopters were sent to help after the horse fell down the side of a trail.
The horse was attached to a harness and blindfolded before a helicopter hoisted it into the air.
It flew through the ravine and the horse was placed safely down at a nearby ranch area. The horse got up on its feet after several tries.
No people were hurt in the fall.
The horse was reunited with its owners after the rescue.
