ERIE (AP) – Authorities in northwestern Pennsylvania said a woman who tried to rescue a cat from a tree ended up needing a rescue herself.


Firefighters in Erie said they brought a 28-foot ladder to help Tara Dennis get down from the branches Sunday.


Residents told the Times-News they’ve heard the feline crying for several days. It was not clear who owns the cat.


Dennis said she couldn’t stand by and do nothing. So she scaled a fence, got on a roof and climbed onto a branch. She reached the animal, but the 21-year-old got stuck as she tried to come down. A neighbor called 911.


Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Carroll says firefighters first carried down the cat, then helped Dennis.
