St. Louis Fire Department

ST. LOUIS – The cliché of a firefighter ascending a ladder to rescue a cat from a tree was turned on its head Thursday when a first responder descended into the sewer to save a kitten.

The rescue occurred around 1:40 p.m. in the 4900 block of Wabada.

The Humane Society of Missouri and St. Louis City Animal Control joined in the rescue effort.
