While the identity of this woman is a mystery, her good deed has touched the hearts of internet users across the world.
The woman heard a kitten crying in a storm drain and decided to crawl inside and rescue the poor animal by herself, and it was all recorded on video.
As the woman inched her way down into the drain, the kitten’s distressed mewing could be heard loud and clear.
What’s remarkable is she took a big risk for the tiny kitten, as she couldn’t have possibly known what else was down there. She could have very well injured herself or become stuck.
Yet she did it all to save this poor cat’s life.
The young woman was able to locate the kitten, pick it up, and bring it safely to the outside world.
The woman then had a bit of trouble getting back out, but she made it with some help, seemingly unscathed.
The video was posted online and went viral—and at one point was shared by an international animal rescue organization called Harmony Fund, which praised the young woman’s actions.
“We don’t know her name. We don’t know what country she’s in. But we do know that the young woman is one heck of a hero,” said a representative of Harmony Fund, according to Mirror.co.uk.
“The difficulty with the internet is that sometimes it’s nearly impossible to trace a piece of content to its origin, but that shouldn’t stop us from celebrating the unsung heroes among us,” said the representative.
We don’t know what happened to the woman or the kitten afterwards, but maybe someday the woman will see just how much of an impact her act of bravery has made on the world.
