Horse airlifted to safety from ravine

For a brief time, a horse was flying over southern California on Wednesday night.

The animal was lifted by helicopter to safety after falling 50 feet at Angeles National Forest.

Veterinarians tranquilized and blindfold the horse so it would stay calm and not spin the chopper during the 3 mile flight.

It touched down without any trouble and was treated for injuries. Its female rider was also rescued.
