A horse that became trapped in a California ravine is now safe.  

Los Angeles firefighters responded to the scene when Sunny the horse was found on the private property.

The 30-year-old horse was down... But appeared to be uninjured.

Firefighters and animal rescue officials were unable to lift Sunny up.

So... They sedated him and called in a helicopter usually used to fight fires.

The fire department removed a tank used to drop water from the chopper, and used the hook designed to hold that tank to lift sunny up. He was flown to a safe location on firm ground where veterinarians could examine him.
