Verizon Worker Heroically Rescues Cat That Was Trapped On A Telephone Pole For 12 Hours

They say that no good deed goes unpunished and while we like to think otherwise, this is often the reality.

Last week, a selfless Verizon worker risked his life to rescue a neighbor’s cat trapped on a telephone pole. Amazing, right? But instead of applauding his actions, Verizon punished the worker. Fortunately, the community fought against this injustice and rallied to support the kind hero.

Verizon worker Maurice German was working in Port Richmon, Pennsylvania when he received a phone call from a distressed resident.

The resident, Amanda Fairchild Boyce, had noticed her neighbor’s cat trapped on the top of a telephone pole.

Boyce told CBS that she believed the cat, Princess Momma, got stuck around 10:30 pm on a Friday. She said that a group of neighbors had attempted to rescue the terrified cat before calling for outside help.

Neighbor and animal activist Sandy McLeish found the Verizon worker Maurice who agreed to help rescue Princess Momma.

In a video captured by CBS reporter Steve Lindsay, viewers witness Maurice save the terrified cat.

Princess Momma’s owners and the community were beyond grateful for Maurice’s heroic actions.

Unfortunately, Verizon was not so pleased.

The company suspended Maurice, alleging that he had put himself and the people around him in danger

“We take no joy in this job action,” Verizon spokesperson Rich Young said. “However, we’re committed and responsible for keeping our employees and customers safe while working in a particular area.”

But Boyce wasn’t about to let this hero be punished for his selfless actions. In fact, she put Verizon on blast in a now-viral Facebook post.

A bystander from the rescue also started a GoFundMe page to support Maurice, writing “This generous man is now being punished! Maurice is being suspended from his job for saving an animal. Let’s support Maurice for his good deed while his employer punishes him!”

Contributions to the GoFundMe exceeded the original $2,400 goal and have raised over $3,000 so far.

People were shocked by Verizon’s actions and applauded Maurice for his heroism.
