Cat survives death defying jump

A lucky cat in Arizona survived a 30-foot jump through high-power lines as people screamed in the background.

Kim the cat may be down to eight lives after the death-defying leap, which was caught on camera in Tuscon. Kim climbed on top of a utility pole that was intertwined with high-power lines and stayed their for two days.

A crowd gathered, including the cat's owner, at the site as rescues went to the top of the pole in a cherry-picker truck. However, the cat had other plans and jumped off the pole in front of a horrified crowd.

Rescuers were on the ground trying to catch the cat with a blanket. But the cat managed to land safely. Kim's owners were grateful to rescuers for the effort.
