Man leaps from yacht with his cat in dramatic rescue

Who says dog is man's best friend? For this French sailor, saving his cat was the number one priority when his yacht was caught in rough weather 400 miles south of Alaska. The video shot by the US Coast Guard shows one of the most amazing rescues at seas – certainly one of the most nerve-wracking to watch as the small sailboat bucks in the ferocious seas as the sailor attempts to jump to safety.

The sailor was heading from Alaska to Vancouver when his 30-foot sailboat lost its rudder and rigging in the heavy seas and 46mph winds. The Coast Guard dispatched a plane to assess the situation and then contacted the Polar Pioneer oil drilling vessel to ask for assistance. A support ship, the Tor Viking, was sent to the rescue.

The sailor tucked his cat into his clothing before making the leap on the ship. It has been reported that both the man and his cat are safe, a heartwarming example of an animal being rescued at sea.
