Craig Cromer and his wife Kimberly used a flag to stop a stray kitty that was seemingly caught on the upper level of the stadium from falling while watching a game between the University of Miami and Appalachian State at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The moment the cat lost its hold and plummeted directly towards the audience after one of its legs got trapped was captured on video by a cell phone camera.
The stadium was stunned, and everyone was stunned not knowing if the cat had made it or not. Finally, a student supported him so that everyone who were present could see that he had lived.
The cat first clung to the railing with both of its paws, but finally let go of one and dropped to the ground below. A few moments later, the cat was presented to the audience à la “The Lion King” and received a wave of applause from those in attendance.
Craig is the University of Miami’s facilities manager, and he generally has season tickets and drapes an American flag on the stadium’s railings.
According to the man, who spoke to Metro UK,
“They were attempting to catch him from above but were unable to do so, but they were able to scare him down. It stood there on two front legs for a bit, then one, and I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, it’ll drop soon.’
Manny Diaz, the coach of the Miami Dolphins, claimed he found out about the cat incident after the game had concluded. With a score of 25-23, the storms defeated the Appalachians.
The instructor went on to say:
I had no idea what happened or what was going on. But I’ll tell you this: if the cat helps us in the red zone, I’ll see what I can do about getting him a scholarship.
Fortunately, the cat was unharmed by the fall, and a security guard brought it away to be looked after. Hard Rock Stadium said on Twitter that they had donated to the Humane Society of Miami in honor of the cat, and invited spectators to do the same.
Apart from dropping their drinks at the moment, the Cromers were also in excellent shape, and it was simply another tale.
Mrs. Cromer added:
“It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen in a game.”
