The RNLI has released some heartwarming helmet-cam footage of the moment when volunteer crew members from Great Yarmouth & Gorleston rescued a cat that had fallen into a bitterly cold canal.
The cat, called ‘Icicle’, had apparently gone on a ‘bit of an adventure’ before somehow ending up in the frigid water.
When the volunteer crew arrived on the scene aboard their Inshore Lifeboat (ILB), the cat was desperately trying to climb out of the water.
No doubt realising that the crew members were there to help, without any hesitation ‘Icicle’ swam towards their boat.
Thankfully, the distressed moggy was spotted by a member of the public who alerted the emergency services.
Thanks to the efforts of the RNLI, the cat was saved from the water and, after being checked over by a vet, was reunited with her thankful owner.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
