NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — Police had to help an ailing carriage horse that collapsed on a steamy day in Manhattan on Wednesday.

The incident happened at 5 p.m. on 9th Avenue and West 45th Street in Hell’s Kitchen.

Officers asked the mounting unit to nurse the horse, seal the block and place a pillow under its head while it was cooled with ice and a hose.

A crowd cheered as the horse was able to get back on its feet with help from the NYPD.

The horse was then taken to a private horse stable at 10th Avenue and West 38th Street, where it remains conscious and awaits proper care.
