Four people, including two Keralites, can be seen holding a large piece of cloth under the building as the cat jumps.
A pregnant cat trapped on the second floor of a building in Dubai literally took a leap of faith in a dramatic incident filmed. Four people, including two Keralites, can be seen holding a large piece of cloth under the building as the cat jumped from the balcony, where it was trapped. Each of the men received 50,000 dirhams (Rs 10 lakh) each for the rescue.
On August 24, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, shared the video on his Twitter page: âProud and happy to see such acts of kindness in our beautiful city. Anyone who identifies these unsung heroes, help us thank them, “he tweeted with a video.
The white cat appears on the edge of the balcony and begins to make its way down, while the men hold out the sheet below. Suddenly the cat falls straight and luckily falls safely into the makeshift net stretched out by the men. She begins to move away, but not until she has obtained pets from the men who saved her.
Ashraf from Morocco, who works as a caretaker, Atif Mehmood, a salesman from Pakistan, Nasser, from Kerala who works as a driver and Muhammed Rashid from Kerala, were honored by the ruler of Dubai.
The incident took place in Deira Frij Murar. The video was first posted by Muhammed Rashid from Kerala, who runs a grocery store on the street. It was Rashid who shared the video on his Instagram. He later also posted another video of the cat eating food and said she was fine.
He had told the media that the cat had been seen on the street so frequently that everyone knew her, but they are not sure how she got trapped on the balcony.
According to reports, the men also knew each other earlier. When they saw the trapped cat, they quickly laid out a sheet and held it under the building. Dubai Police collected details of the men in the video and later officials from Sheikh Mohammed’s office handed over the award.
