A Turkish teenager, Özgür Ege Şire, jumped almost a-feet-deep when he noticed a stray cat was trapped in an oil-filled well.
The 19-year old was walking through a bushy area in North Ünye district when he heard strange muffled noises coming out of the well. Upon looking deep down into the darkness he saw the small cat covered in the muck.
Without hesitating, Şire jumped into the well immediately to save the dying animal.
Şire was largely covered with thick oil which made it a bit difficult to escape the well, but local people close heard what was happening and were able to him out and take him to a closest hospital.
Luckily, both Şire and the cat survived due to the confident he got to do this amazing job.
“I hope we can instill a love for animals in all people,” he said.
