Good Samaritan Rescues Terrified Cat Stuck on Busy Highway

A selfless passerby who saved a cat trapped on a busy highway is being hailed as a hero. Richard Christianson posted a video of himself online saving an orange Tabby cat trapped on the I-17 in Phoenix, Arizona. Christianson tried calling the emergency services and public safety offices but they couldn’t send help fast enough. So, seeing no other option, he took it upon himself to save the cat, who was bleeding from the mouth and paws after trying to escape from the highway.


The cat, named Freeway, is in care at an animal hospital following surgery. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery. Once at full health Freeway will be available for adoption.
