Seven people have been hurt, including a two-year-old child, after a horse unseated its rider, jumped over an 8ft-high(2,40m) fence and leapt into the crowd in Australia.
The accident happened during a race known as the Grand Annual Steeple in the city of Warrnambool.
The horse, Banna Strand, leapt over a high brush fence at the side of the jump and into the crowd of around 50 people who were watching the event from behind the barriers.

It landed among spectators – who had not seen the horse coming – before it kept running, chased by police.
“Everyone just screamed and then started ringing ambulances,” local photographer Angela Milne revealed.
“It was really hard for the ambulances to get there because the race was still going.”
