Squir­rel back from dead

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - NEWS -

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.
