A miracle cat named Gigia survived the 6.2 magnitude earthquake that devastated parts of Central Italy, causing the deaths of almost 300 people. She was rescued by the firefighters after being trapped under the rubble for five days.

Daniela was in despair when she was not able to return to her home after it was destroyed in an aftershock. She pleaded with the fire department to find her cat.

"Please find her, she's all I have left," she told the firefighters.

They were working with bulldozers to move the rubble and spotted something moving in the wreckage. It was Daniela's cat. She was severely dehydrated but alive.

They quickly gave the cat water to help her re-hydrate.
