Last Saturday morning, a Malaysian disabled man has been praised for his kindness when he left his wheelchair in order to rescue a small kitten that was stuck in a storm drain – with no possibility of escape.
30-year-old Abu Menk Mujtahid is a athlete. He and his disabled friend were on their way to the nearby Kota Kinabalu Sports Complex when they spotted a kitten stuck in a drain, struggling to hold onto the concrete barriers. The poor creature was already drenched, Abu wrote in Malay.
Although Abu is unable to use his legs and the odds are stacked against both of them, he didn’t hesitate to get out of the wheelchair to help the stranded cat.
Abu carefully reached his arm down, picked up the kitten away from danger and moved it to a safer place. The kitten appeared to be fine, so she happily left him and went about her business as soon as Abu set it down on the grass.
His friend, who has a prosthetic leg and could not climb down, managed to film the moment that Abu rescued the kitten.
Watch the heart-warming moment Abu put his own life in danger to save the kitten.
Abu shared the clip of the heartwarming scene and recounted the incident. Everyone praised him for his altruism and for rescuing the cat despite the dangerous circumstances.
