Brave Swede Water Rescues Cat Stuck Under Ferry

Read The Local

The cat had got stuck under the HSC Gotlandia II, which operates in Visby on the island of Gotland, and the crew were spurred into action after hearing strange noises coming from the vessel.

“We heard the cat meowing when we were getting on to work, it had probably fallen into the water and was trying to crawl up. He sat there and was distressed,” crew member Stellan Stenberg told Aftonbladet.

Colleague Johan Skärkarl donned his wetsuit and jumped into the water to retrieve the animal, before swimming to the shore with the cat nestled on top of his stomach.

Brave guy – I once tried rescuing a cat from a dog, and got a full face of scars to prove it ! :-)
