Early in the second quarter of No. 22 Miami’s home-opener against the Appalachian State Mountaineers, screams and shouts erupted from the student section. Initially, some onlookers mistook a dangling cat for a baby or a dog.

Responding quickly, people in the lower deck realized the situation. One fan stretched out an American flag to create a makeshift landing pad for the terrified cat. The crowd waited anxiously for about two to three minutes, which seemed to last forever, until the cat finally lost its grip and tumbled down toward the suite level.

The flag successfully cushioned the cat’s fall, allowing a group of students in the section below to safely catch it. The rescue was met with loud cheers and applause from the crowd. In a celebratory gesture, one of the students triumphantly lifted the cat in the air like a trophy, prompting the entire corner of the stadium to erupt in cheers.

Although the game concluded with Miami’s narrow victory of 25-23, the real heroes that night were the quick-thinking fans who saved the cat from certain death.
