Girl, 6, just the right size to rescue kitten from storm drain

Aw.

Firefighters were too big to rescue a kitten from a storm drain in south-central Pennsylvania, but a six-year-old girl proved to be just the right size.

Lancaster Township firefighters responded when Janeysha Cruz and her friends saw the trapped kitten Tuesday afternoon.

The girl’s mother called 911 and then gave firefighters permission to lower the kindergartner nearly a metre into the drain, which was too small for the firefighters to enter. The girl was able to coax the kitten to come to her and handed it to the firefighters.

  1. A few days ago I was pulling out of my driveway to go do some errands when saw a bunch of street department guys crowded around the storm sewer, and my neighbor and her little girl standing on the curb watching. My neighbor told me a bunch of baby ducks had fallen into the storm sewer, and naturally the mother duck was frantic. We all hung around and watched as the street department guys used a net to fish out the ducklings, and when the last one had been rescued and returned to its mama, we all applauded and cheered.
