After a heavy rainstorm in St. Albans in Virgina, United States, the Westside Volunteer Fire Department were called in to help around the city. Suddenly, a sound could be heard coming from a drain pipe. Upon closer listening, it appeared to be the sound of a kitten, trapped in a drain pipe.
This woman did not hesitate for a second to throw herself to the ground and crawl into the drain, while another held her by her shirt and legs.
The determined woman struggled until she finally got a hold of something – the tiny, shivering little kitten.
Unfortunately, they also found that another kitten had already died. But the woman, who risked serious injury to herself, managed to save the other little kitty’s life.
After the dramatic rescue, staff took hold of the tiny kitten and warmed it with a towel.
The poor kitty was pretty shaken up, but pretty lively and certainly happy to have been rescued.
Such a relief that it all ended well. This woman is really a true hero!
The kitten was promptly taken to a veterinarian and put up for adoption.
A huge kudos to everyone out there that helps and rescues vulnerable animals! They deserve all the respect in the world!
Take a look at the video below revealing the spectacular rescue:
