An Unusual Roadside CPR Save
October 12th, 2018
Squirrels are unfortunately the biggest victims of roadkill. And the majority of people continue on their way...but not this guy. Minneapolis resident, 19-year-old Chris Felix, couldn’t leave the scene without seeing if the little guy was OK. The car detailer got out, put on a glove, and started giving the squirrel CPR. Nearby officers thought he was having car trouble so stopped by to see if he needed a hand and were (rightfully) a little confused to see what he was working on instead. But their body cameras did catch the whole scene on video. After a bought 20 minutes of chest compressions, the squirrel jumped up and ran off…glad to hear it was a happier ending than most squirrels have!
