Firefighter Cory Kalanick is being hailed as a hero, for his actions in saving the life of a kitten recovered from a house fire.
The ten year department veteran was looking for salvage in a Fresno home, when he found the lifeless kitten in the middle of the floor. The camera on his helmet captured the entire rescue, as he quickly rushed the distressed cat outside, and rested it on his glove to protect it from the hot street. After grabbing a mask, he can be seen administering an entire tank of oxygen to the kitten, and cooling down its tiny, overheated body with water until it lets out a "meow."
"Lucky," as the feline was affectionately nicknamed, was brought to the Central California SPCA after the incident, and then returned to his owners. As of this writing, CBS47 was still trying to contact them to get an update on his condition.
Kalanick, who admits to being teased for being an eco-friendly vegan, thinks it's a "pretty cool thing" that they were able to help the kitten out.
“I really hope that cat is being loved,” he said.
