TV News Crew Helps Rescue Horses In Middle Of Wildfire Live Shot
You can’t stop looking the horses.
As KCBS reporter Kristine Lazar and photographer Marvin Stone were covering the Sunland Fire in Southern California Thursday, they came upon Gibson Ranch in Sunland.
They pulled over and started doing a live shot.
Lazar does a fine job describing the fast moving flames and the volunteers who showed up to try to get the 150 magnificent creatures to safety.
As things get more intense, the two make a split second decision.
Forget our job.
We are people.
And extra set of hands.
Two people who can make a difference.
They start moving horses.
It’s a dramatic moment.
Here’s the live shot.
Things take a big change at 2:00, when you here Lazar ask those behind her, “Is there anything we can do to help?”
Postscript on this incredible moment—
Those 150 horses?
Not a single one was injured.
The property is a total loss and the owner is overwhelmed.
Both with the amazing people who just showed up to help and the job ahead of him, should he choose to remain.
From the sound of neighbors, it appears, this Gibson Ranch is a pretty special place and all sorts of people will want to help them rebuild.
I wish them all the best.
