Carriage horse collapses in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan; NYPD officers help it back up

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — Police had to help a distressed carriage horse that collapsed on a steamy day in Manhattan Wednesday.

The incident happened at 5 pm on 9th Avenue and West 45th Street in Hell’s Kitchen.

Officers requested the Mounting Unit to tend to the horse, shutting down the block and placing a pillow under its head while cooling it down with ice and a hose.

A crowd cheered as the horse managed to get back on its feet with the help of the NYPD.

The horse was then taken to a private horse stable located on 10th Avenue and West 38th Street, where it remains conscious and awaiting proper care.
