In a very wet rescue operation, firefighters flushed a crying kitten out from an Ohio drain pipe, saving the little one’s life.
A kitten was lodged in a drain pipe underneath a concrete driveway until fire and rescue crews were able to flush the crying baby cat out in a rescue that took place on Friday.
A crew from the Mentor Fire Department Station #5 was called to the Westport Independent Living facility in Mentor, Ohio shortly after 3 p.m on Friday. The crew found the tiny kitten trapped about 15 feet from the end of a PVC pipe that ran from the building’s downspout and went under the driveway.
Staff at the assisted living facility took the kitten to a veterinarian to be checked out after the rescue.
The firefighters filled in the hole they dug to enable the rescue and tidied up the scene before leaving.
