SAN RAFAEL, CA - One nine-year-old horse in California had a close call on Monday. He was rescued in San Rafael, about 20 miles North of San Francisco.

Local media report the horse, named buddy, was trapped here for hours after falling through the wood covering the well.

Local officials feared they might not be able to save him. But a crane was brought in to fish him out.

Buddy suffered a few cuts and scrapes, but veterinarians say he'll be okay.
