Boy, 15, climbs 60ft tree to save cat stuck for FIVE days. . . after firemen do nothing
When Diesel the cat refused to come down from a 60ft spruce tree, he was stuck there for five days – because of health and safety rules.
The local fire and rescue service feared its officers would be ‘putting their lives at risk’ if they tried to rescue him.
In the end it was a 15-year-old boy who came to the cat’s aid – without the benefit of the fire brigade’s ladders, safety nets or cranes.
As Diesel’s mews trailed off into silence and his owner feared he would die from dehydration, Kyle Watkinson simply climbed the tree and brought him down yesterday afternoon.
