When Leon Gaskin, Sara Persad and Breda O’Mahon spotted the cat out their office windows, they quickly prepared a towel and a cardboard box and were on their way to the rescue. They pulled in on the bridge, got off the car and managed to get the kitty into the box. (Blue Cross)
"When we saw the cat in such a dangerous situation we knew she needed to be rescued quickly before she fell or was hit by a car," Leon said. "We were worried we might scare her when we got up there but luckily she was happy to come with us."
