OUTER BANKS, N.C. (WAVY) — A kitten that was tossed off a bridge in the Outer Banks has a loving new home.

Reece Newman and Ben Presgrave work for NCDOT as underwater inspectors. The two men were on a boat Wednesday inspecting the Old Manns Harbor Bridge when they saw a cat in the air that had been thrown out of a moving vehicle.

The employees rescued the distressed kitty — and Newman and his family adopted it!

A veterinarian said the kitty, named “Bridger Catfish Newman,” is healthy and doing well.
