Cries heard from underground drain pipe—when rescuers arrive, they immediately start digging

This video will have you on the edge of your seat, as you watch the rescue of a 5-week-old kitten from a drainpipe on the west side of Detroit, Michigan.

A kitten fell down a drainpipe in the backyard of a home, and the unmistakable sound of its cries could be heard. When staff from the Michigan Humane Society arrived, they attempted to lure the kitten out but failed. So staff called for assistance from the Cruelty Investigation Department.

While trying to save the kitten down the pipe, staff discovered three more kittens trapped under a cement slab, which they rescued quite easily. However, the poor kitty stuck down the pipe took a bit more ingenuity and time to reach.
