The biggest play at the University of Miami – Appalachian State University football game Saturday night didn’t happen on the field.

Video from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens went viral over the weekend showing a cat dangling from an upper deck, where it clung to some type of fabric on the railing. At least one person reached down to help, but the cat plummeted to the seats below.

Thankfully, “the careening kitty” was caught by fans who held an American flag as a makeshift rescue tarp. Multiple videos shared online, showed the stadium full of fans riveted by the cat adventure.

Cheers erupted once the cat appeared to be safely rescued.
