A lucky kitten has eight lives left after being rescued from a storm drain on Long Island. The rescue happened Saturday in a parking lot on Long Beach Road. Firefighters rushed to the scene after a passerby heard a cat crying beneath a drainage grate.

The firefighters tried to coax the kitten out of the grate but it was too scared to move. Then they scared it with a fire extinguisher and it jumped out.

The black and white kitten was shaking and chilled to the bone.

It was taken to the Hilton Animal Hospital in Lynbrook and put in a warming cage.

Once it is healthy, the kitten will be available for adoption.
