BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) ‚ÄĒ A motionless squirrel apparently stunned by a passing car has been revived by the driver who performed chest compressions beside a Minnesota road.
Police officers on patrol in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Park thought the man might be performing CPR.
In police video posted to the department Facebook page, the man tells the officers he swerved to avoid the animal and didn‚Äôt think he struck it. The squirrel was not bleeding and the man says if he had hit it ‚Äúhe would‚Äôve popped.‚ÄĚ
The man flips the squirrel onto its belly and as he strokes its back, the animal starts to come around.
The squirrel eventually darts away and an officer declares: ‚ÄúThere he goes! You saved his life, dude!‚ÄĚ
