1.Our hero ran across the bridge exactly at the time that the perpetrator must have been running in the opposite direction.
2. He heard the cries because he wasn’t listening to music at the time of his jog.
3. He didn’t hesitate or wait for help. He jumped into the water and did what he had too before it was too late.
JOGGER’S MIRACULOUS RESCUE OF CAT THROWN INTO RIVER INSIDE WEIGHTED-DOWN CARRIER!
This may be one of the most profound cases of ‘being in the right place at theright time’ that you’ll ever hear and a story you won’t soon forget.
….Matthew Guidarelli was out for a jog along Normans Kill, a 45.4-mile-long (73.1 km) creek in New York state. Matthew was crossing a footbridge above the water when he heard what at first sounded like a baby crying. He stopped, listened some more, and then spotted a cat carrier sinking beneath the water.
Matthew jumped into the water and crossed the current quickly. As he hoisted the crate, it seemed unusually heavy. He was stunned to find not only a large tabby inside but also a heavy rock, intended to make sure the cat would never surface again.
Bethlehem, New York, police are somewhat doubtful the perpetrator will be found,but there is one lead in the case. The carrier is marked with a neon pink sticker that might help identify the cat’s former guardian. Please take a close look at this sticker (shown in the comments section below) and share WIDELY. (Note: Carol cannot find the photo of the pink sticker.)
As for the tabby, he’s been given the name Chance and is an absolute delight to be around. His new “parents” report that he loves to be brushed and to roll on his back. In just a few days, he has already stolen their hearts and they can’t get enough of him.
