Sequence of events left to right
Try as they might, firefighters could not help a black and white cat stranded on a ledge below a sheer drop into a river drain. But not to worry. The cat ignored firefighters' dangling ropes dipped in fragrant pet food. Instead it chose to leap into the icy waters, where the cat paddled to a ladder bracketed to the drain wall and climbed the ladder rungs up 20 feet to safety. Once on solid ground, the black and white cat dodged all efforts by interfering humans to dry him and ran off.
