To rescue the cat, volunteers from SPCA Singapore got into the apartment unit it was closest to, and reached out the window with an animal catch pole.

Police officers watched the harrowing scene from the ground floor, where they held out an open blanket in case the cat fell.

After several minutes of attempting to get the kitten on the line, as shown in a video by the SPCA Singapore, the volunteer was able to latch the line around its neck and pull the kitten back through the window to safety.

According to a post on Facebook, volunteers then warned the cat's owners to add screens to the window to prevent it from wandering out again.
