Thatsaphon Saii, a twenty-three-year-old Thai sailor, still wearing his pants, jumped into the water and swam toward the wreckage of a burning ship to rescue 4 kittens that were stuck on board. All of the 8 crew members who were on the ship have, thankfully, already escaped the fire and were saved by a shipping boat that was sailing past them, but 4 terrified kittens were left on the ship, clinging to a finishing crane as flames roared all around them.
According to Metro, the moment Thatsaphon realized they were there, he, without hesitation, plunged into the water and swam toward them, grabbing the three kittens - placing three into an old rice sack and the fourth right onto his shoulder. Then, he paddled back to the navy vessel and somehow managed to save kittens without a single one of them being hurt. The ship was left to burn and sink in the ocean.
