Not long ago, the Internet was overjoyed with a story about four kittens that would have drowned for sure if it wasn’t for the heroics of one man. A boat was capsized in open sea near the island of Koh Adang, trapping eight crew members and four kitties. The crew called for help but the boat was already sinking quickly.
Luckily, the Thai Navy managed to come just as the boat was already on its way down. The crew members were rescued quickly and without problems. Upon closer inspection looking for an oil spill, one office noticed four kittens on a crane-like structure, so he immediately took his shirt off, put on a vest, and swam in the waters to save the kittens.
He was able to do so just before the ship sank. If he didn’t arrive on time, it could have been a cat-astrophe. Pics of the courageous act were shared online and the office, Thatsaphon Saii, became a worldwide Internet hit.
