We are happy that due to the heads up nature of fans in sections 107, 110 & 208 the cat landed safely after a harrowing fall. We wish the cat the best in his remaining eight lives.

The crowd managed to save the animal and there were cheers all around.
In a tweet on the microblogging platform, Hard Rock Stadium said, “We are happy that due to the heads up nature of fans in sections 107, 110 & 208, the cat landed safely after a harrowing fall. We wish the cat the best in his remaining eight lives.”
