With oncoming traffic zooming towards them, these brave paramedics didn’t give a thought to their own safety.

These caring cat-lovers knew that the helpless ginger kitty was just moments from being crushed to death by the fast, motorway traffic. Its not an everyday sight on the roads in Nakhon Sawan, Northern Thailand.
Paramedics spotted the kitten as they were driving past
Immediately when the driver spotted the kitten on the road, he pulled over to the side of the highway. He climbed out of the ambulance and started to run towards the stranded kitten. His colleague, realising the danger from the passing traffic, ran beside him, waving franticly to alert any other drivers and warning them to slow down.
Good Samaritans save kitten from the middle of the road
Bin Bunluerit the paramedic rescuer, walked into the roadway and scooped up the tiny kitten. At first, he wasn’t sure if it was hurt or even dead, as it just lay there quietly. The kitty soon realised that help was at hand and he began to meow quietly. The rescuers walked back to the ambulance holding the 6-week-old kitten gently, as they didn’t know the extent of any injuries.
Kitty receives treatment in the ambulance
The paramedics placed the tiny kitten onto a stretcher to check him out. His heart was pounding and his legs were very weak. Of course, they aren’t trained in feline first aid, so they needed to quickly take the stranded kitten to a vet’s surgery. Wrapped up gently in a small blanket, the kitten soon relaxed when he realised the paramedics were not going to hurt him.
It’s possible that this abandoned kitten has been separated from its mother and siblings and somehow managed to wander into the middle of the road. Thank goodness for these good Samaritans who came to his rescue.
This lucky ginger tabby will now be put up for adoption.
