A man in Inner Mongolia, China, went above and beyond to rescue a pregnant horse that was trapped in a deep hole in the snow.
He found the horse laying lifeless, unable to find any strength to pull itself out.
The rescuer who lives in Hulunbuir summoned his friends and eventually used a loader with a rope to hoist the horse out of the hole.
A heartwarming video shows the successful rescue after which the horse seemed completely unharmed by the ordeal.
The Good Samaritans reportedly said that before the horse wandered away from the scene, it looked back at them and gave them a gesture which seemed like an expression of gratitude.
Mr. Wang, who filmed the video on January 3rd, waved to the animal as it departed.
