Pets are a part of our family. The moment they enter our lives, we consider them equal to our children. However, when it comes to saving one or the other, our children would always prevail. That’s not what this Chinese granny had in mind. She loves her cats as much as she loves her grandchildren and recently made a decision that could make you rethink your priorities.
One day, the granny spotted her cat sitting on a ledge one floor lower than her balcony. She had no way of getting the cat, so she came up with a brilliant idea – dangle her 7-yer-old grandchild on a rope so he can get the cat! It sounds crazy but it’s true!
Take a look at the video below – it was filmed by people on the street who noticed the kid dangling on a rope. The grandma put 7-year-old Hao Hao on an impossible mission to save her beloved cat that was stuck on a ledge one floor below. As you can see, the boy balances himself on the ledge until he grabs the cat and is safely pulled back up by his grandmother.
The footage instantly went viral around the world and as expected, the granny was heavily criticized. Who would risk the life of a grandchild to save a cat?! Well, this Chinese granny did it. Everything turned out great in the end – the kid and cat weren’t harmed at all.
Ms. Tang said that she doesn’t feel guilty and that she had the situation under control. Many won’t agree on that, but we can all agree on one thing – she’s a very strong woman for her age!
