Grandma Uses Rope to Lower Boy from Balcony to Get Cat.

In the bustling city of Nanchong, a heart-stopping scene unfolded that showcased the lengths to which a grandmother would go to save her beloved feline.

Ms. Tang, upon discovering her cat precariously perched on a balcony ledge one floor below her own, sprang into action.

Rather than opting for the conventional route of seeking help from neighbors or emergency services, Ms. Tang, in a burst of adrenaline and determination, devised a plan with her seven-year-old grandson, Hao Hao.

The duo, with the assistance of the boy’s uncle, used a rope to carefully lower Hao Hao to the balcony below.

Onlookers from the street below watched with bated breath, their hearts in their throats, as Hao Hao dangled mid-air, supported only by the rope and his grandmother’s unwavering grip.

The mission? To retrieve the distressed cat. However, the feline, possibly an orange tabby, had plans of its own, proving a tad elusive. But with patience and gentle coaxing, Hao Hao managed to secure the cat in a bag.

The return journey was equally tense. Both the cherished grandson and the rescued cat were suspended over a daunting four-story drop. But with combined efforts, Ms. Tang and the boy’s uncle successfully pulled them to the safety of their balcony.

A Lesson in Hindsight

The dramatic rescue, captured by a bystander, quickly went viral on social media, drawing both admiration and criticism.

Chinese media outlets broadcasted the footage, making the story an international sensation. Beijing News reported that Hao Hao was unscathed from the adventure, but Ms. Tang did face some questions regarding the risk involved.

In a candid chat with Red Star News, Ms. Tang expressed her unwavering confidence in her actions at the moment. However, upon reflection and after viewing the footage, she confessed to feeling a delayed apprehension for her grandson’s safety.

She explained her decision to not involve the fire department, believing the situation to be “trivial” and best handled personally.
