Vietnamese Boy Jumps Into Sewer To Rescue Trapped Kitten, Earning Netizens’ Praise

Vietnamese boy came to the rescue of a kitten

Everyone loves cute animals. After all, if a pup or a kitten approaches you with those innocent eyes, how could you turn away without giving it a treat and a pat on the head first?

The love that this Vietnamese boy has for animals, however, is on a whole different level. Upon hearing the cries of a little kitten trapped in a sewer, he did not hesitate to jump into the murky water to help the animal. Needless to say, his act earned lots of praise from netizens.

Jumping into the sewer to save a trapped kitten

The story was first shared by a Facebook user by the name Nguyễn Đạt Tiến on the popular forum Beatvn, where many Vietnamese youths share information and interesting occurrences.

According to Tiến, the boy was playing with his friends when he heard a kitten’s cries coming from the sewer. After fumbling around for a while trying to help the little creature without success, the boy ran back to his house to fetch a net and jumped into the sewer himself.

Judging from the pictures, we can see that the sewer was too small for an adult to go in. If not for the boy’s big heart, the poor kitten’s life would surely have been forfeited.

Some others also expressed concerns for the boy’s own safety. Netizen Minh Tú said the act was commendable, but if the boy were to do such a thing again in the future, he should wear protective boots in case there are pieces of shattered glass in the water.
