These women were making their way down the street when one of them noticed something unusual. Then, without warning, she jumped into the adjacent sewer. And when she emerged once more, she had made the most adorable discovery.
Two friends were walking down the street one day when something made them come to a halt. One of the women had heard a strange, unexplained noise. And so she stopped walking, stood completely still and tried to locate where the weird sound was coming from.
As she listened intently, the young lady realized that the noise was actually coming from a nearby sewerage drain. And so she moved towards the opening to get a better look. The grotty hole, however, was much too dark and angled far too deep to peer down into.
As the noise continued, however, it became evident that it was, in fact, the cry of an animal. Moreover, the creature was stuck at the bottom of the drain, with no way of escaping. And so the lady in question decided she had to do something to help, and quickly.
Without hesitation, she got down on the floor and began to hatch a plan. Because the drain was so deep, simply reaching out to the animal was not an option. And so she knew she’d have to resort to more drastic measures if she was going to come to the rescue.
Instead then, and with her friend filming, the woman opted to take her life into her own hands. She decided that in order to save one life, she would have to risk her own. And so she prepared to lower herself into the dark slit of the sewer.
From there, the young woman somehow managed to squeeze herself into the tiny rectangular opening. Then, for an agonizing few minutes, she disappeared from sight completely. But as her friend looked on with bated breath, she finally cried out – as if to say she was okay.
The women continued to chat to each other as the lady in the sewer attended to the animal in need. And then, she picked something up from the floor and handed it up to her friend on the ground. And as the girl placed the creature down, it became clear the animal in question was a tiny kitten.
The little cat was shaken and a little disheveled. But considering what the animal had been through, it was in surprisingly good health. And so it’s safe to say the girl’s selfless deed certainly paid off.
With her quest completed, the woman dragged herself back through the drain and onto the road above. Once there, she reunited with the kitten and her friend. And despite what had happened, she couldn’t have looked happier.
No one knows just how the kitten came to be stuck in the bottom of the sewer. It’s possible the little baby fell in or was washed towards it in heavy rain. Alternatively, a human may have dumped it there.
Following the ladies’ efforts, a video of the epic rescue mission appeared online. However, it seemed neither of the people responsible for saving the cat wanted any limelight. And so the footage contained no information on who the rescuers actually were, and also neglected to say where the events took place.
But it didn’t take long for the folks at Harmony Fund to find the heroic footage. This organization facilitates animal rescues all over the world. And they wanted to thank the lady who risked everything for the life of one little kitten.
And so the charity took to its Facebook page in a bid to find the woman. They described her actions as heroic and appealed for any information on her. It seemed they were keen to give the lady the credit she deserved.
“We don’t know her name. We don’t know what country she’s in. But we do know that the young woman is one heck of a hero,” a spokesperson for Harmony Fund said in a statement published on the Daily Mirror website.
And although it would be a near impossible feat to find the woman, they refused to give up. “The difficulty with the internet is that sometimes it’s nearly impossible to trace a piece of content to its origin,” the statement continued. “But, that shouldn’t stop us from celebrating the unsung heroes among us.”
“Maybe, just maybe, this story will find its way back to her,” the spokesperson added hopefully. “And if it does, she will be delighted to read all the supportive comments left on our Facebook page by viewers like you.”
If the organization did track the woman down, they no doubt had a way of thanking her in mind. For example, the charity recently gifted one animal rescuer with a car. This particular good Samaritan, Darlene Varnot, had dedicated her life to helping cats.
And those at Harmony Fund weren’t the only ones who thought the mysterious stranger deserved some praise. “There need to be more people like this in the world,” one Youtuber commented. “God bless her and people like her.”
Whether Harmony Fund will get to thank the female rescuer remains to be seen. But perhaps the lady is simply happy in the knowledge that she saved a life. After all, not everyone can say they’ve done that.
