Pony Falls Into Pool After Getting Drunk on Fermented Apples

A horse in England wandered into a swimming pool after getting drunk on fermented apples Tuesday, the Daily Mail reports.

The pony, nicknamed "Fat Boy," escaped his stable in Newquay, Cornwall, on Tuesday and became intoxicated after munching on fallen, rotten apples, the paper said. He then fell into Sarah Penhaligon's pool.

"I was terrified, but when I took a closer look, I realized it was a horse," she told the paper.

It took rescuers two hours to build hay steps to help the animal get out of the pool, the Daily Mail said.
