There aren’t many reasons to swim through a polluted river. This hero, however, landed on a good one when he saved a stranded kitten from drowning.
This is the heart-warming moment a good Samaritan braves a filthy canal in Bangkok, Thailand, to rescue a stranded kitten moments after the hapless feline fell into the dirty water.
Faint cries of meow from the female cat were heard by passers-by who were too afraid to wade through the notoriously polluted canals. But one man bravely removed his top – and despite not being a strong swimmer – used a polystyrene box as a float to negotiate the deepest part of the water.
He made it to the other side where he was able to stand within reach of the cat. The resourceful man was carrying a large net in his free hand – thank god he thought to take it to work that day – which he then used to scoop up the kitten and pass it to a neighbour whose house backs onto the canal.
