A caring commuter in Lima, Peru stopped her car immediately when she saw the tiny month-old kitten in the middle of the highway.
Lorena Castro was heading to Lima’s city center when she noticed the helpless kitten.
“I was about to get out of the car to pick her up when the motorcycle cop passed by,” Castro told Peruvian newspaper El Comercio.
“[He said,] ‘Stay in the car. I’ll take care of it.’”
She then decided to turn on her camera and caught the dramatic rescue on video.
The police officer proceeded to shut down several lanes of traffic and saved the kitten from being hit by a bus.
When he returned, Castro wanted to give him some money for his efforts, but the officer refused and continued on his day.
Castro has now adopted the kitten and named her Polly Tana after the “Metropolitano” bus line the kitten was found on.
