Journalist Covering Story Notices A Mouth Full Of Teeth In Tiny Hole

Jul 19th, 2021

As a journalist, Gina Silva of KTTV Fox News and KCOP covered different events and situations. And one time, she did not expect that while she was doing real-time reporting on a wildfire, she would end up saving a life.

When the Creek Fire in Southern California burned and managed more than 15,600 acres, everyone who is residing within the area had to quickly evacuate their homes and run to safety. Unfortunately, not everyone was able to evacuate.

One of them was a 23-year-old horse named “Kenny” who almost didn’t make it.

Kenny was running out of its stable to run aware of the fire when it stumbled and fell then got trapped in a crevice between the stable walls. The wildfire got closer and closer and Kenny can’t do anything to help himself. The poor horse was left laying on its back unable to move freely and run for safety.

Fortunately, Gina Silva was at the right place at the right time. She was doing real-time reporting on the wildfires onsite when she found Kenny.

The reporter and her crew were walking around the area when she noticed the trapped horse. The firefighters were focused on containing the wildfires at that time and they couldn’t be disturbed. So Silva and her team tried to free the horse themselves but to no avail.

Gina decided to send out an SOS on social media.

Twitter users who were following updates from her were quick to retweet the message in hopes of finding rescuers for Kenny. And it didn’t take long before a local veterinarian read the tweet and got in touch with Silva. The locals also offered their assistance. And in no time, a team of rescuers gathered outside the stable planning on how to rescue Kenny.

“Several viewers sprung into action. A veterinarian tranquilized the horse, others began moving furniture out of a garage and LA County fire freed up a small crew to help with the rescue. They all tore down the wall to free the animal.”

Moments later, Kenny was free!

He was then brought to the veterinarian’s clinic for further treatment. Thankfully, Kenny only had minor injuries and recovered quickly. The vet quickly got in touch with Kenny’s owner to give the good news. After he was well, Kenny got reunited with his owner.

Silva made sure to update everyone on Kenny’s condition on her Instagram account. And after what she did, she received praises for her actions. Online followers expressed joy and relief after seeing photos of Kenny being rescued.

According to Kenny’s owner, she wasn’t able to bring Kenny along as she fled the area from the wildfire. But she was incredibly relieved to hear that her horse was safe and sound despite the minor injuries. She is very much thankful for the efforts of everyone involved in the rescue, especially Gina Silva. The owner didn’t delay reaching out to say thank you. She also sent Silva flowers and a handwritten note.

Humans truly have a soft heart for animals. And it is truly heartwarming to hear stories similar to this. Kenny was given a second chance at life thanks to the quick thinking of his rescuer, Gina Silva.
