Cats are usually stuck above ground in trees and rooftops, but one cat got stuck underground and so did its rescuer.

Two women were taking their cat into the Tallahassee-Leon Animal Service Center when it got away.

It went into a drainage sewer nearby.

A man saw the cat flee and decided to help. He first tried to coax it out of the sewer. He finally decided to go in after it.

Well, the cat ran out but the man got stuck.

Eventually, he was able to wiggle his way out and after an exhaustive effort to get the cat, he gathered enough energy to talk about his good deed.

"I was just trying to be a nice person, [be] a good Samaritan. That's all I wanted to do. Felt great to know that the cat got out and the people were happy and were able to get their animal back," said Anthony Worthington, the man who saved the cat.

The cat was retrieved and successfully taken to the animal shelter.
