Palermo, Italy (CNN) — Here’s something you don’t see everyday — a horse flying through the air.

Emergency crews in Palermo, Italy, used a helicopter to lift this animal to safety after it fell off a cliff.

The horse was reportedly grazing in a field when it stumbled down an incline and could not move. Volunteers called in the emergency team after several failed attempts to assist the animal.

The horse was reunited with its owner and received an all-clear from its veterinarian.
