This is the moment quick-thinking football fans rescue a cat falling from the upper deck at a Miami stadium by using an American flag as a landing pad.
The cat somehow managed to enter the Hard Rock Stadium when it got stuck and caught its paws off the facade of the upper deck at Saturday’s game between No. 22 Miami and Appalachian State at the Hard Rock Stadium.
Video shows the feline as it desperately tries to grab onto a nearby fan’s outstretched hands before free-falling to the deck below, as the watching crowd erupts into audible gasps and screams.
It eventually fell to the lower level of the stadium, where fans using an American flag as a makeshift net were able to safely catch it before it was carried off to safety.

‘They were trying to grab it from above and they couldn’t reach it but they were scaring it downward,’ said Craig Cromer, a facilities manager at the University of Miami and season-ticket holder who with his wife Kimberly brings the flag to each home game.
‘It hung there for a little while with its two front paws, then one paw, then I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, it’s coming soon.’
That’s when the Cromers unhooked the flag from the ties they use to keep it on a railing and hoped for the best.
The petrified cat fell, bounced a bit off the flag and eventually was secured by some in the nearby student section before being brought away by stadium security workers.
