טכנאי 'בזק' שהגיעו לשכונת גן חקל ברמלה בעקבות קריאה על תקלה, שיפשו את עיניהם: באחד מבורות הבטון הנמצאים במקום הם גילו סוס שנפל פנימה ובמשך ימים נתקע שם ללא יכולת לזוז. הטכנאים ההמומים לא חיכו רגע והזעיקו למקום את לוחמי האש ממחוז מרכז תחנת איילון, ואלה חילצו אותו במבצע מורכב שארך ארבע שעות. להמשך קריאה

No beast of burden should have to suffer that much.המשך לקרוא..
