The employee of KP Rescue 1122 showed heroic devotion to duty and the noble cause of saving animals on Wednesday by risking their lives to cross a roaring river in Lower Kohistan to save a trapped pet cat.
The 11-membered family was relocated by the Rescue 1122 crew during the rescue operation in Pattan Tehsil of Kohistan district.
The officials made plans to tie iron ropes to bridge the surging river and to move the stranded family, which included two mothers and two children.
Their pet cat arrived at the scene after the family had been rescued and started making noises to draw her owners’ and the rescue workers’ attention.
An employee of Rescue 1122 returned to the other side of the river after spotting an innocent soul in need of assistance and carried the cat back to safety.
The cat jumped from the rescue worker’s hands during the river crossing owing to the strength of the water tides, but the official quickly caught her again to prevent her from falling into the river.
After being brought to safety, the family members expressed their gratitude to the authorities and their appreciation for their bravery and commitment to duty, which extends to saving not just humans but all other living things as well.
