    I looked up the actual news story, and the horse and driver veered to the edge to avoid a parked car, only to slip over. That seems like an unlikely scenario, but if the carriage slid over, it might have pulled the horse with it... And I think the vehicle is a mountain hack, not a buggy, but I can't confirm that. Neither participant was injured. It sounds as though they could have self-rescued, as the horse was just walked down to a place where he could exit the canal on an accessible path, and the canal was not particularly deep. Still, who wants to go for a dip in January?
