Squirrel back from dead
When police in Minnesota saw a car abandoned in the middle of the road with the driver’s door ajar, they stopped to investigate.
They found the teenage driver kneeling down by the kerb and quickly realised he was performing chest compressions on a squirrel lying on its back.
The driver, Chris Felix, explained that he had swerved to try to avoid the squirrel, which had been darting across the road, but his vehicle still hit it.
He had been performing CPR for nearly 20 minutes and, just at that moment, it began to stir.
Suddenly it was fully revived and rushed away and up a tree, as the police officers commended kind Chris for saving the squirrel’s life.
