A cop with the NYPD’s Mounted Unit was bucked off the horse he was on when the animal was spooked by music from a parade on Sunday, police said.
A spooked horse sent a cop from the NYPD’s mounted unit crashing onto the pavement, with the mayor and governor then rushing to his side, at the Greek Independence Day parade Sunday.
The officer, identified in a tweet from the chief of the Special Ops Division as Kenny Dorn, was bucked from his steed, Murphy, when the horse got spooked by a band along the parade route at Fifth Ave. and E. 68 St., police said.
