Amazing moment dock worker dives into murky Thames to save cat that had fallen in

By: , Category: Entertainment

A London docks worker has been hailed a hero for saving a cat from drowning after it fell into a Thames canal in a fight with a fellow feline.

CCTV shows Felix – the Royal Docks Management Authority’s office cat – being chased by a rival before plunging “into the drink”.

Worker Scott Derben, who witnessed the clash, quickly runs over to Felix’s aid as the other feline makes a quick getaway.

As Felix splashes around in the Thames, Mr Derben gets down on his stomach and grabs the cat by the scruff of her neck and hauls her to safety.
One user wrote on Twitter : “Top man. Didn’t stop to think and didn’t wait around for plaudits. Always good to remember that most people are kind and generous.”
Another added: “I’ll stand him 2 pints at the public house of his choosing.”

In the video Felix, a female cat, is chased out of an alleyway by the rival feline before they tussle near the water’s edge.

Felix then rolls over a couple of times before falling into the water.
“But as if to prove just how well the waters are maintained by the staff of the Royal Docks Management Authority, Felix the RoDMA cat ended up in the drink while bravely engaging in a hostile territorial battle (ie running away) from another cat.

“We can happily report that Felix suffered no injury or trauma. She also seems to be completely unaware that the rest of the RoDMA team have been laughing behind her back after the blase ‘nothing to see here’ routine that followed her dunking.”
