Police officer rescues cat from garbage disposal

WAYNE, Pa. (WPVI) -- A very curious cat could have lost one of his nine lives, if not for a Chester County police officer and some coconut oil.

Sam the cat found himself trapped in a tight spot after trying to sneak down a garbage disposal in Wayne on Saturday.

Sam's panicked family called Tredyffrin Township police and Sergeant Brian Hughes responded.
