Police on the scene request a rescue extrication of a horse from a horse trailer parked at Full Moon Family Restaurant -- a 24-hour restaurant near Lake Bluff and North Chicago.

A horse was caught after it tried to jump out of a horse trailer. Firefighters improvised to support the suspended horse with a three-inch blitz line hose used as a girth harness, which was linked to the bottom of the Tower Ladder truck basket with rescue rope and carabiners.

Citizens, including the horse's owner used the bed of a pickup truck and a bobcat tractor to support the horse before firefighters arrived and improvised with their rigging.

The horse was safely rescued with only minor cuts.

North Chicago Fire Chief Dell Urban credited Lt. James Axtt in command of the call and rigging, and Battalion Chief Josh Rickabaugh and firefighters Marc Harman, Brian Henderson, Carlos Perez and Leonard Cooksey as successful crew members on the call..
