A disabled man risks his life by getting out of his wheelchair to save a kitten stuck in a drain.
A disabled Malaysian man was praised for his charity last Saturday morning when he got out of his wheelchair to save a small cat that was stuck in a storm drain and had no chance of escaping.
Abu Fathiyyaturahma Menk Abdun Mujtahid is a 30-year-old Paralympic competitor. He saw the cat caught in a sewer, clinging to concrete barricades as he and his crippled companion made their way to the adjacent Kota Kinabalu sports complex. Abu said in Malay that the poor animal was already soaked.
Although Abu could not use his legs and the chances were very slim for both of them, he did not hesitate to get out of his wheelchair to help the distressed cat. Abu carefully reached down, picked the kitten up out of harm’s way and moved it to a safer place.
The kitten seemed fine, so it happily left him and went about its business as soon as Abu put it down on the grass.
His companion, who has a prosthetic leg and cannot get off, was able to capture the kitten’s rescue on camera.
Watch the touching scene where Abu risks his own life to save the kitten.
Abu narrated the event and shared the video of the touching scene. Everyone praised him for his selflessness and for saving the cat in such dangerous conditions.
