I’ve posted some amazing footage of firefighters in the past, but here’s one for all you animal lovers.
And get ready to shed a tear, because this is one awesome animal rescue.
The heroic firefighter is Cory Kalanick, and it was shot with a GoPro camera strapped atop his helmet as he responded to an emergency call in Fresno, Calif. You can see the moment that Kalanick spots the unconscious kitten lying in the burned, smoke filled room — and lucky for the cat — he immediately takes action.
UPDATE: Sadly, the kitten in the video died later that afternoon due to smoke inhalation. That said, I think it’s important to recognize the firefighter in the video for his noble attempt to save an animal life.
Which reminds me, the Human Society of the United States advises pet owners to create a disaster plan for any and all pets. Remember, it’s always a good thing to Be Prepared.
