WEST PARK, Fla., April 16 (UPI) -- Firefighters in Florida said they cut through a section of fence pipe anchored in concrete to rescue a trapped newborn kitten.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue said Engine #27 responded when some children heard meowing coming from a section of fence pipe on the ground on Southwest 37 Terrace in West Park and the firefighters pinpointed the sound to a section of the 12-foot pipe anchored in concrete, WPLG-TV, Miami, reported Monday.

Firefighters said they cut through the pipe and freed the kitten, which appeared to be only a few hours old. They fed the kitten milk from a syringe and took it to the Humane Society of Broward County.
