Police and firefighters work together to save kitten

- On Tuesday, Cocoa police officers had to shut down the north and south bound lanes of Clearlake Road to rescue a small kitten trapped underneath the road.

At about 3 p.m., deputies say that they received a call from a person who said they heard what sounded like a small kitten "meowing" in the storm drain across from the main entrance to Oak Meadows apartments.

When officers arrived, they said that they heard the crying sounds and contacted the fire department for assistance to lift the storm gate. A firefighter jumped into the drain to attempt to rescue the kitten, but it jumped deeper into the storm pipe.

The report goes on to say that police and firefighters then worked together to try and lure the kitten out with food, but still nothing. They eventually decided to pump water into the pipe to see if the kitten would run out and success!

The kitten reportedly ran out and a firefighter grabbed it before it could escape again.

Police say the kitten was turned over to Brevard County Animal Services.
