American football fans went to see a game at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami over the weekend, but there was a side attraction which led fans to recue a falling cat during the game.
The incident occured during a game between Miami Hurricanes and Appalachian State Mountaineers, which saw the Miami FL touching down 25 – 23 against App State.
However, a horrifying incident took the centre stage when a mysterious cat was seen hanging from a death-defying height. Some patriotic football fans were quick to react to catch the cat.
In a video captured by one Twitter user “@carolinaaley,” it can be seen that the cat is struggling to climb back the balcony. Unfortunately, it couldn’t and it had to make the fall.
The cat was able to keep all of its nine lives after some fans were able to break its fall with an American flag. The cat slipped through it though but the fans were able to deliver a makeshift rescue and it has been confirmed that the cat is safe.
Officials at the Hard Rock Stadium later made the following statement, saying;
“We are happy that due to the heads up nature of fans in sections 107, 110 & 208 the cat landed safely after a harrowing fall. We wish the cat the best in his remaining eight lives.
We have made a donation to @humanemiami
and encourage fans to do so.”
