Horse dies overnight after dramatic rescue in Arroyo Grande

Several hours after a 34-year-old horse was rescued Wednesday night in rural Arroyo Grande, the horse died. The Horse and Emergency Evacuation Team said the horse passed away around 2:00 a.m. Thursday.

The horse named "Storm's End", was rescued late Wednesday afternoon from a 15 foot ravine at Stagecoach Road and El Sueno Way. Storm's End, or "Storm" for short, was found lying in a gully, upside down in the water.

Storm was 950 pounds, so his owner called for help and Cal Fire responded. Cal Fire was assisted by the Horse and Emergency Evacuation Team, as well as a veterinarian. The vet said Storm was in shock and suffering from hypothermia at the time.
