The Good Samaritan risks his life to rescue a cat as the raging waters of Hurricane Ian surround him.

As Floridians brace for Hurricane Ian, which made landfall Wednesday afternoon, a resident risked his life to rescue a feline left vulnerable to the raging storm.

A video posted on twitter by Megan Cruz Scavo has gained widespread attention for a display of good humanity in action.

The video, taken in Bonita on the state’s southwestern coast, shows Cruz Scavo’s boyfriend, Michael, wading through knee-deep water, trudging toward an air-conditioning unit where a cat was perched on it.

Many residents in Southwest Florida were told to evacuate on Sept. 27, but some didn’t, choosing to shelter inside their homes.

The man in the video, Michael, gently picks the animal up before walking back through the water to carry the cat inside to safety.

“My boyfriend saving a cat from the floods near Playa Bonita,” the woman captioned the video.

Michael carefully picks the cat up and holds it close to his chest as he walks toward the shelter.

The video, just 44 seconds long, has racked up more than 620,000 views since it was posted shortly after noon on September 28.

Cruz Scavo also tagged the video with ‘Hurricane Ian,’ ‘Naples,’ ‘Bonita,’ and ‘Fort Myers,’ all cities currently facing or expected to face torrential conditions from the tropical storm.

Commenters were quick to ask for an update on the situation.

“Safe,” the Florida resident said on Twitter when someone asked how the cat was doing. ‘The [Michael] He gave him food and water and he is inside his parents’ house.’

He also clarified that the video was taken at Michael’s parents’ house, located ‘on the beach’.

Cruz Scavo responded to a person who asked if anyone had left the cat behind by saying, “I’m not sure, it could be a stray dog.”

The selfless act shown in the video is enough to make anyone believe that humans are inherently good, and the comments reflect the nature of the video.

‘He is an archer! (the boyfriend) (and the cat!),’ one woman said in response.

‘Sorry, Megan, but he’s everyone’s boyfriend now. I don’t make the rules,’ said another person responding to Cruz Scavo’s post.

DeSantis had previously warned that the tropical storm would cause “catastrophic” flooding and urged residents to heed evacuations and warnings issued by the state.

‘Mother Nature is a very fearsome adversary, heed evacuation warnings. You could see power outages, inland flooding, various types of trees damaged by wind, so be prepared for that.

The images show the water receding from Tampa Bay, due to the movement of the hurricane, since the same phenomenon occurred just before the passage of Hurricane Irma.

Tampa, north of Bonita, is bracing for a 6-foot storm surge before landfall this afternoon, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is telling those who have remained in evacuation red zones it’s time to ‘take shelter. ‘ and ‘prepare for the storm’.

Officials warned that storm surge could reach 18 feet, packing deadly winds and flooding along the state’s densely populated Gulf Coast from Bonita Beach to the Tampa Bay region, with rainfall reaching 18 inches.
