SPARTANBURG, S.C. (November 18, 2009)–A South Carolina woman heard a giant splash in her backyard and discovered that a 650-pound cow had fallen into her swimming pool.
WSPA-TV reported that the cow fell into Kathy Wydareny’s covered pool Monday night.
The Anderson, S.C. resident said the cow belongs to her neighbor.
Wydareny was startled by a “giant whoosh” and took a flashlight out to investigate. She called 911 after spotting the cow.
Five men from the country rescue team used a sling to pull the cow to safety.
Wydareny believes the cow got loose and just kept walking, not realizing that the pool cover wasn’t actually solid ground.
The cow is doing well.
Wydareny hopes her homeowner’s insurance will cover the damage to her pool.
