File this one under strange rescues you have to see to believe.
While looking out their apartment window, two men spot something out of the ordinary over their heads: a wee black kitten dangling perilously from a thin clothesline. Hanging on with just a claw, mewing for help, the men know that they have to act fast to save the kitten from injury or death.
One grabs a large rug, holding it open below the kitten, while the other man uses a long broom to gently knock the kitten from above into the makeshift safety net.
The entire rescue, lasting only momentarily, is a success. And, like with all great rescues, was caught on tape. Watch it above!
