Indiana crews work to save piglets from overturned tractor-trailer

Not a fire, but an interesting situation Thursday night for a central Indiana fire department. A livestock semi tractor-trailer hauling nearly 2,100 piglets from North Carolina to Iowa overturned along Interstate-465 in the Indianapolis area. Crews worked nearly 4 hours to save as many animals as possible by offloading into other trucks, which hauled surviving pigs to the Indiana State Fairgrounds for shelter for the night. As shown below, final estimates were in the range of 700 animals lost in the incident.
