Pennsylvania woman trapped under dead horse when it died suddenly

A woman walking a horse up a hill in eastern Pennsylvania became trapped after the animal died suddenly and fell on top of her.

Authorities say the bizarre incident happened Sunday afternoon.

Firefighters who responded to the scene were told to turn off their sirens so the other horses wouldn’t be spooked. They lifted the animal off the woman, and she was transported to a hospital.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that she suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

It’s not immediately clear why the horse died.
