A kitten that was tossed off a bridge in the Outer Banks Wednesday has a loving new home.
According to the NCDOT, three of the department's underwater inspectors were in a boat near the Old Manns Harbor Bridge conducting a routine inspection when they spotted a kitten after it was thrown from a moving car.
The workers -- Reece Newman, Ben Presgrave, and Billy Cox -- rescued the little kitty
"Luckily, some of our employees were there to save the day!" the DOT said on Facebook.
After getting a quick checkup at the vet, Reece Newman and his family adopted the lucky kitten and named it "Bridger Catfish Newman."
