A kitten was rescued by New York Police officers after she cheated death by clinging onto the undercarriage of a car as it traveled more than 15 miles from Harlem to Brooklyn.
The black and white female was crossing the Jackie Robinson Parkway in Brooklyn on Tuesday. The driver of a Volkswagen SUV saw her and stopped his car to avoid running her over, but when he looked to see if the kitten had escaped, she was nowhere to be seen, as reported by the New York Post.
The man continued his journey to West 135th Street and 7th Avenue in Harlem.
Seven NYPD police officers were involved in the operation to remove the kitten from the car’s undercarriage

A team of seven NYPD officers from the 32nd Precinct took part in the rescue operation using a car jack to remove the, undoubtedly terrified, kitten from the car’s undercarriage.
