HUMBLE, Texas — Thanks to the heroic efforts from volunteers and Good Samaritans, more than 50 horses were rescued from the Cypress Trails Equestrian Center Thursday after the remnants from Imelda poured sheets of rain across the Houston area.
Zach Karrenbrock recorded video of volunteers swimming through chest-deep floodwaters to save the horses.
Karrenbrock said this was pretty challenging because currents from Cypress Creek were running through the property.
Karrenbrock said all of the horses were moved to high ground and transported to a safe location.
As far he known, there were no injuries or fatalities to any of the horses.
