Heroic firefighter climbs down dirty canal to save trapped kitten in Malaysia

A heroic firefighter climbed down a dirty canal to save a trapped kitten.

Fire officer Kopi Hangit’s team were called about the moggie clinging on the edge of a bridge in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on December 8.

His colleague Fahmi then set up a harness so he could rappel down on a rope and grab the animal before putting it into a bucket.

Kopi said: ‘I was holding the rope for him. I was grateful because we were able to finish the mission successfully and the cat was saved.’
