When the owner was about to have the morning coffee, she heard the loud noise from the backside of her house and find trapped horse in her basement.

Actually she broke through the window well covers into the basement. It took more than 4 hours for the backhoe and personnel from road and bridge, who dig out the well, Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office.

First they tried to bring horse summer up from the basement stairs, but she was too big for the stairs way.  There was no walk out door in the basement installed that was why it was difficult to get her out of the basement. That is why they did around the second window well area and make a way for the horse. Removing the ground of the foundation and create maximum space to bring her.

It has been more than one month now when that happen, it was all over the new and tv spared out like the country news. I am very interested in the basement well cover’s new and technology.
