    Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Mr. Ryan said the cat was on their building site and trapped, before trying to flee.

    "Long story short, the cat was on my site and he was trapped and couldn't get out. We tried catching him but couldn't and then he ran past our concrete getting poured and got splashed. That's it no one ever hurt him I saw the whole thing"

    Frank may lose his eyesight as a result of this incident, after having his eyes, nose, and mouth cemented shut.

    BuzzFeed News has reached out to the owner of the cat for this story.
