Here’s a touching story of four kittens that were almost drowned at sea. A boat sank in deep waters near the island of Koh Adang, and eight stranded crew members requested assistance. Despite the rapid rescue attempt, the Royal Thai Navy had to re-evaluate the capsized boat for an oil spill. The boat was well on its way down to the depths when the cops arrived.
Wichit Pukdeelon, a First-Class Petty Officer, zoomed in on the debris with his camera to investigate the boat. That’s when he noticed four cats clinging to a crane-like structure for dear life. Another rescue operation was launched right away, and this time, time was of the importance.
Thatsaphon Saii, 23, stripped down to his underwear, put on a life jacket, and swam 50 feet to save the kitties.
Thatsaphon Saii, 23, one of the policemen, saw the gravity of the situation and acted quickly. In an attempt to save them, he donned a life jacket and plunged into the water.
He swam around 50 feet and reacted promptly to the sinking boat. The fires were spreading, and there wasn’t much time left before the boat sank completely. He swam back and forth between the two boats, one by one, carrying the cats on his shoulders.
As the boat sank fast and fire spread throughout the vessel, time was of the essence.
All four cats were safely rescued and boarded the navy vessel.
The officers could finally breathe a sigh of relief as they saw the unlucky boat sink completely engulfed in flames when the four cats eventually landed on reasonably stable footing of the Royal Thai Navy warship.
The narrative of the ship is still unfolding. According to authorities, the ship’s oil tank is prone to spilling and is extremely hazardous to the environment. The Navy is in contact with other authorities in attempt to recover the debris before it causes too much environmental harm. Oil spills wreak havoc on coral reefs and eventually settle on the bottom, putting the flora and wildlife in even more risk
The cats were subsequently relocated to the Royal Thai Navy’s command post on the island of Koh Lipe, where they are currently safe and well. The story’s hero, who nearly literally crossed the oceans to save these four adorable kitties, was glad that they were rescued.
He was certain the cats would have drowned or perished of thirst if he hadn’t intervened.
The savior and the saved have a moment of togetherness.
