DORCHESTER (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – A very lucky cat downed one of its nine lives after rescuers pulled it to safety in Dorchester.

Tuesday afternoon, crews had to climb down into an abandoned air shaft of an older building on Devon Street.

Somehow, the cat fell through the roof, down into the shaft and was stuck at the bottom.

A technician from the Animal Rescue League of Boston was able to climb down and make the rescue.

Rescuers have nicknamed the cat “Shaft.”
