Raw video from the scene shows the moment police officers rescued George the cat from a track bed on a NYC subway line early Wednesday evening and handed him back to his petmom, Mila Rusafova.

George got out of his carrier at the Canal Street subway platform and jumped down into the track bed, where he was dangerously lose to the electrified track.

The MTA shut off the power to the tracks and suspended service on both uptown and downtown C and E trains, resulting in delays for somewhere between 80 and 100 or more trains during the late afternoon/early evening rush hour.
