In the video below, police officers at a New York City subway station rescue a scared cat off the rails and return him to his owner.
When Mila Rusafova, the owner of the cat named George, heard a disturbance as they were traveling home from the veterinarian, George leaped out of Mila and into the railroad track. Unfortunately, a train was coming slowly and steadily in the distance.
Mila became frantic and other people came to alarm the subway conductor to halt the MTA train. After that, Officers Brian Kenny and Gus Vargas showed up on the scene and jumped into the tracks to help the little cat before it could wander farther away.
“He was panting, he was petrified,” Officer Brian Kenny said. “He didn’t move a muscle. The third rail was within four inches of his tail.”
“He looked at us. I picked him up, he reached for both of my shoulders like a baby. He almost hugged me,” Kenny said. “I love animals. Nothing would have happened to George. We were going to make sure of it.”
Although this caused heavy subway delays, we’re happy these men were there to save the day. They did their best to bring this poor baby to safety.
