Police came together to rescue a kitten stuck in a drain, thanks to the help of some neighbors.
The kitten could be heard crying for help by the neighbors of 89 Street and Farragut Road around 5:30 p.m. Friday.
A neighbor knocked door to door to try and get help.
They called police, who brought over an emergency services unit to assist, rescuing the feline just in time.
The drain would have filled and the kitten could have drowned. 
Linda Lorenzana, an expert rescuer who will help nurse the kitten back to health, estimates that he is about 4 weeks old. She believes someone likely dumped the kitten.
“If he was the only kitten in there, it's most likely he was tossed in because kittens usually stay with their siblings when they're this age,” Lorenzana says.
The kitten, who does not yet have a name, will be checked out by a vet. When he's strong and old enough, he will be up for adoption.
