As part of its valiant work to protect the people of Lebanon from a multitude of disasters from fires to explosions, the Lebanese Civil Defense also endeavors to save helpless little creatures in trouble.
Last month, a team from the Marine Rescue Unit in the Lebanese Civil Defense was able to save a sea turtle that got stuck in the vent of the Al-Zahrani Power Plant.
And on Sunday, members of the Civil Defense went out of their way to rescue a kitten that had been stuck on the balcony of a 2nd-floor apartment in Zouk Mosbeh-Keserwan.
Pictures that were taken during the rescue show how scared and confused the kitten was:
You can see as it tries to hold onto the hand of the rescue worker who first saved it from the balcony, and then how it stares in shock at the other member as he takes it back down to safety.
