Pedestrians in China rescued a kitten struggling to climb up a river embankment using a bucket. 

The video, which was recorded in the county of Xichuan in Henan Province on May 13, shows a kitten struggling to climb the embankment. 

The ginger kitten was using foliage on the embankment to try to pull itself up when passers-by noticed it was struggling. 

A man lowered a bucket on a stick into the river, holding it near the cat as he tried to coax it inside.

The kitten continued trying to climb up the embankment using the stone wall while the man held the bucket near it. 

Another passer-by stopped to help the man rescue the kitten from the river.

The second pedestrian used a second stick, with what appears to be feathers attached, which he dangled near the cat. 

He used the object to try to coax the kitten into the bucket from the embankment wall. 

The pedestrian knocked the kitten gently a few times as it got nearer to the bucket. 

After a few more attempts to rescue the feline, the kitten dropped off the wall, falling into the bucket.  

The first passer-by lifted up the bucket with the cat safely inside. 

He lifted the cat over the fence at the end of the embankment wall and placed the bucket containing the cat, now safe, on the roadside.
