Sinking horse pulled from mudflats in Australia

Help

A horse has been rescued after it became trapped in mudflats in Geelong, Australia.

Nicole Graham had been riding Astro on the beach when he began to sink.

With the tide coming in, there was not much time to spare.

Astro was eventually sedated, and pulled out by a tractor. He escaped with just a few scratches and bruises.

Ben Ando reports.
