(Newser) – Not the finest hour for New York's finest: Firefighters in New York City had to rescue an NYPD officer after he became stuck up a tree while trying to rescue a cat, Gothamist reports. A tower ladder bucket was used to bring the officer—and the cat—down from where they were stuck, about 30 feet above the ground. "All people and animals are safe after this incident," an FDNY spokesman says. The rescue attracted a crowd of students who had just gotten out from a nearby school, a witness tells NBC, adding that fire trucks "took their time" in the rescue.
