Firefighters in central Pennsylvania couldn’t fit into a storm drain to rescue a tiny kitten, but fortunately there was a 6-year-old girl who was just the right size.
Janeysha Cruz, 6, and her friends discovered the trapped kitten Tuesday afternoon.
Janeysha’s mom called 911 and then gave firefighters permission to lower her daughter nearly 3 feet down into the narrow drain.
The Lancaster Fire Department reported the incident on its Facebook page, along with a picture of Janeysha, Deputy Fire Chief Glenn Usdin and the kitten.
