Horse rescued after taking a dip in Bohemia swimming pool

A horse named Penny got lucky.

Suffolk County police and Bohemia firefighters rescued the 3-year-old mare stuck in the deep end of a swimming pool Saturday morning, trapped in the homeowner’s pool covering.

The resident of the home called 911 just before 8 a.m. to report their horse was stuck in the in-ground pool on Pond Road.
