A hero cat’s persistent meowing led emergency crews to the location of an 83-year-old British woman who plunged 70ft down an embankment.  

According to Cornwall police, rescuers were alerted to the injured woman’s location by her pet cat, Piran, who was meowing from the corner of a large cornfield near her home in Bodwin.
