This week, a new idol on social networks is 23-year-old Tatsafon Sayi, a fighter of the Coastal Defense Unit of the Thai Navy.
The young border guard became famous for risking his life at a critical moment and rescuing four cats from a sinking ship, although this is against the rules. Photos of the heroic act scattered all over the world. at full strength
Border guards arrived to check if there was a threat of an oil spill. And suddenly they saw cats on the ship!
The ship was already burned out, but there was a risk of fire from spilled oil. In addition, the ship almost sank, sinking under water before our eyes. The crew did not say anything about the abandoned cats, and it is not the responsibility of the coast guard to save them. However, Tatsafon Saiyi rejected all doubts, put on a life jacket and threw himself into the water.
Seconds are counting, the ship is about to go under water
As Sai said later, the cats were quick-witted. They didn’t scratch, they didn’t interfere, they clung tightly to the vest with their paws while he swam back. They really wanted to be rescued!
The tailed creatures were dried , fed and examined. Fortunately, they were intact, only scared. The cats have been taken to a command post on Koh Lipe where they will be looked after until they are distributed. Tatsafon Sayi was reprimanded for risking his life without orders and rewarded for rescuing those in distress.
