    Video posted by the Duxbury Fire Department Saturday morning shows crews freeing a trapped horse during Friday's destructive nor'easter that downed power lines and trees, leaving more than 385,000 without power in Massachusetts.

    Rescue crews reported that the horse became trapped when strong winds from the storm collapsed a stable right on top of him.

    Crews can be seen using a chain saw and hand tools to free the animal pinned down by the rubble.

    Once freed, the horse - named Rocky - was able to walk away from the scene. Firefighters say he is doing well Saturday morning.

    "Rocky is doing great," wrote The Duxbury Fire Department in a tweet. The department said they are handling numerous other storm related incidents on Saturday.
