The humanity displayed in this video, that was posted to NSW Fire and Rescue, has made our hearts explode!

The footage shows NSW firefighters being the true heroes that they are and performing CPR on a tiny kitten after they pulled the creature unresponsive from a stormwater drainpipe.

Crews in Wee Waa, 450km west of Coffs Harbour on the NSW north coast, were called to an IGA store on Friday where they found the kitten stuck under a concrete footpath.

The firefighters managed to pull the feline free but soon realised that it wasn’t breathing and so they attempted to resuscitate it.

After about a minute and a half of efforts to bring the kitten back to life, it begins to breath again and is given an oxygen mask while it is dried and wrapped inside a firefighter’s jacket.

“We love a good news story,” Fire and Rescue NSW wrote in the caption of the video.

“Our crews from the north western New South Wales town of Wee Waa worked to bring the little animal back after a rough time in a drain.”


No owner came forward for the kitten but it has since been adopted by a local man, Clancy Hamilton, and has been given the name ‘Draino’ after the dramatic rescue.

What a beautiful story!
