FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Fire rescue officials have a little advice before you start your car these days and that is to tap the hood.
The reason is a recent rise in calls for animals trapped within vehicles.
The latest rescue took place Thursday morning at 2724 N Andrews Avenue in front of Las Colinas restaurant where two kittens were within a car’s engine area.
One of the kittens was trapped and required firefighters’ help to free it from the undercarriage of the car.
The rescue had a happy ending. Both kittens were reunited with their owner.
Firefighters said by tapping the hood of a car before starting the engine, it gives the animals a chance to get out or a chance to hear if one may be trapped and needs helped.
