Most people are familiar with cats getting stuck in trees or telephone poles. However, elevator mechanic Sean Hannon saw paw prints on the tops of an elevator and realized a cat had gotten inside the elevator shaft.

When the cat sneezed, Sean was able to locate the cat. He pulled open a metal plate and pulled the cat to safety. Amazingly, if the cat hadn’t managed to move its head at the right time, it could have been struck by a passing elevator.
