Sadly, none of the onlookers wanted to venture into the dirty canal to help the cat.

That particular stretch of the canal was notorious for harboring toxic waste, and no one wanted to take the risk of stepping into the polluted water.

But after several minutes, a passerby spotted the cat’s plight and immediately volunteered to rescue her!

But the man was determined to save the cat, so he grabbed a polystyrene box as a float and began wading into the filthy water to reach the cat.
