“Peering down the gap, you could just make out this bundle of fluff and the glint of two eyes,” Tambini said. “They were about 12 feet back inside the gap. I managed to get one of the kittens out. It was one of the braver ones who came close enough for me to reach.”
After securing one of the kittens, Tambini realized that the rest were much too far back for him to reach on his own, so he contacted the London Fire Services for a little extra help. At first, the firemen were worried they would have to knock down a wall in order to reach the kittens, but after a little more effort, they were finally able to reach the rest of the kittens using a grasper tied to the end of some rope.
