One horse owner faced a tragic loss after a horse died in a freak accident on a highway in Hawaii.
The trailer, which was carrying a total of five horses, was trying to merge onto Interstate H-1 westbound on the island of Oahu when the bottom of the trailer broke and one of the horses fell through it, according to KHON2. It became wedged underneath the 40-foot-long trailer, where it died.
Emergency responders and the horse's owner did what they could to help the horse, but it was too late. The four remaining horses were unhurt and the horses' owner eventually continued west down the freeway.
"I'm surprised it happened, but I'm heartbroken for the horse as well for the owner," Diane Cornish with Equine 808 Horse Rescue told KHON2. She reminded local reporters that trailers made to handle livestock should be regularly maintained and inspected more than once a year.
