What would you do if you heard cries coming from a storm drain? Some of us might call for the authorities for help, but for one woman, calling for help was not what came to her mind.
A young woman was walking on a street with her friend when they suddenly heard high-pitched cries. After looking around, she realized the sounds were coming from a storm drain and that it was a kitten trapped inside it!
The woman looked around to see if she could find a way to reach the kitten. But when she couldn’t, she knew just what she had to do—crawl into the storm drain herself instead of waiting for help from the fire department or an animal rescue center.
The whole rescue was recorded on video and uploaded to the internet. The footage showed her getting on her knees and entering the drain. She disappeared into the drain for several seconds to find the kitten and emerged again to hand the kitten to her friend.
The video soon went viral and attracted the attention of Harmony Fund, an international animal rescue organization. The organization praised the woman’s actions on their Facebook page and wanted to thank her.
“We don’t know her name. We don’t know what country she’s in. But we do know that the young woman is one heck of a hero,” a representative from Harmony Fund said.
“The difficulty with the Internet is that sometimes it’s nearly impossible to trace a piece of content to its origin, but that shouldn’t stop us from celebrating the unsung heroes among us. Maybe, just maybe, this story will find [its] way back to her and if it does, she will be delighted to read all the supportive comments left on our Facebook page by viewers like you,” the representative added.
The organization is not the only one that praised the woman, as many internet users also praised her.
One netizen wrote, “Just when you’ve lost faith on people, some like her come by.”
“What a champ! You go girl! I would have been scared to go in there cause of claustrophobia,” another commented.
However, there are also others who think that the woman should have called for help fearing that she could have got stuck inside the drain. Well, this thoughtful lady proved her might. But if you came across this situation, what would you do?!
