This is the moment rescuers send a cat perched on a 10th-floor ledge free falling to safety as it lands on a tarpaulin stretched out far below.
The rescue took place in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, when the cat apparently took a dangerous journey from the apartment’s balcony to the building’s narrow ledge.
The video filmed by a witness shows the white cat standing on the ledge as two firemen try to push it with what seems to be a cloth-covered stick.

As they manage to do it the cat is then seen having a free fall and it lands on a tarpaulin held by four firemen.
It reportedly took nearly an hour for the team to rescue the cat after receiving an emergency call from the animal’s unnamed owner.
The Senior Fire Officer Othman Abu Bakar explained that they found the cat trapped on the 10th floor of an 18 storey building.
They initially tried to catch the feline with a net but the cat went further away. He added that the feline is safe now.
It is not clear whether it suffered any injuries.
