When 911 operator Mathew Meek saw a kitten being thrown our of a car crossing a bridge, he took immediate action, calling an officer to the scene. Meek was honored by the Palm Beach Police Department (FL) during an award ceremony.
“Our 911 operators are a vital part of our police department, but quite often they’re not really recognized because they’re behind the scenes,” Major Nicholas Caristo shared with those in attendance. “But not today.”
The kitten, named Bridget after the location on which she was found, has also gotten a very happy ending. She was adopted by Major Caristo.
