Hampshire firefighters were involved in a dramatic rescue of a pregnant cow and her baby from a muddy pit in Crawley.
The heifer and her calf were saved from the pit with the calf being safely born minutes later.
When firefighters arrived, the cow was almost fully submerged in the slurry pit up to her neck, desperately trying to stay afloat.
Calving while submerged in the pit, odds of the calf being delivered were very slim.
As soon as the calf was delivered the farmer and vet set to work to get it to breathe.
After a challenging delivery, the mother and baby are fit and well and were standing up only 20 minutes after birth.
