This is a heroic rescue of a young man who spotted a kitten that fell into a roadside canal and used an umbrella to quickly retrieve the kitten to safety.
Yuusuke Mieno from Japan was waiting for a traffic light when a stray kitten fell into a roadside canal after the kitty was nearly hit by a car.
The man didn’t hesitate to climb over the canal wall. By using an umbrella, he was able to scoop the distressed kitten out of the water and bring it to dry land.
"The kitten rescue was a success," he wrote on twitter.
"Even as a future firefighter, I couldn’t overlook any life whatever that might be," he said.
