A 53-year-old New York man fell to his death trying to rescue a cat from a tree early Monday, police sources said.
Marcial Rios-Aguilar scaled the tree at a Bronx park at 3 a.m. using a rope, police said. The branch gave way and Rios-Aguilar died. The feline remained stranded in the tree.
"He loves animals. He was a nice man,” said Manuel Cabrera, 36, whose wife is Rios-Aguilar’s cousin. “He helps people all the time."
