A video of a tiny kitten shooting out of a pipe after being rescued by fire fighters armed with a leaf blower has become a hit on YouTube.
Rescuers can be heard laughing hysterically as the kitten pops out of the pipe, apparently unharmed, reports Metro.
One of the firemen said: "We had a small kitten that fell and got trapped in a small pipe at the fire station and we used a leaf blower to blow it out of the pipe from the other side of the building.
"No kittens were harmed in the making of this video."
The video has notched up about 600,000 hits on the video-sharing website.
