Tow truck crew rescues cat from a tough spot (NY)


Recommended Posts


STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Andrew Golub and Cesar Torres are tow truck drivers who are used to aiding people when their cars break down, run out of gas, or are no longer drivable following an accident.


This time, they rescued a furry feline instead.


Golub, a retired correction officer who has only been on the job for two months, said he noticed a woman crawling underneath her white Hyundai and told Torres to pull over.


They were traveling back to Staten Island on Route 9 in Old Bridge, N.J., at the time.


"The driver was female, crawling underneath her car in the middle of heavy traffic in the left lane of the highway; we had to stop," Golub explained.


The woman saw the cat run underneath her car but never saw it exit. She told the gentleman she was afraid to drive any further.


Golub said they immediately removed her tire, knowing she was in danger because of where she stopped her vehicle.


"We do roadside service so we're fully equipped [to remove the tire]," he said.


Once the tire was removed, they were able to see the striped cat clinging to the wheel well - obviously frightened.


The woman put the cat in her car and said she'd take it to a safe location.


"It sets a good example - if you have the means to help somebody, you should," he said, knowing that had they not pulled over, the story could have ended much differently.


It's safe to say the towing duo can now add ''cat rescuers'' to their resumes.
