INDIANAPOLIS — A 17-year old is safely on the ground after firefighters rescued him from a tree that he climbed to try to rescue a cat.
The Indianapolis Fire Department responded to Holliday Park and found Owen and the cat in the tree. Owen told firefighters he was trying to do a good deed and bring the cat to safety.
Crews spent an hour Saturday night working to get Owen down. He was not injured.
IFD says "the cat seemed to enjoy the commotion but made no effort to climb down the tree."
