Miami Police Horses Shocked By Live Wire At Booker T. Washington High

Authorities said a Miami police officer was riding a horse Monday on a street on school grounds when the horse was shocked by a live wire.

The incident happened Monday morning at Booker T. Washington Senior High School.

Authorities said the horse somehow was shocked several times by a live underground wire. Two other horses were also shocked, but not as severely, police said.

Authorities said the officer dismounted the horse and was not injured.

The horses are expected to be OK, but were each given emergency veterinarian care and attention.

Crews with Florida Power & Light are taking a look at the wire to determine what caused the horse to come into contact with it and to make sure no one else gets hurt.
