Last month, pool repairman Nick Gruber started out his work day like any other morning. Little did he know he would become a hero by giving a teeny tiny drowned squirrel CPR to bring the fragile creature back to life.
Dubbed the “Squirrel Whisperer”, Gruber, a self-proclaimed animal lover, said he would have attempted the rescue for any animal in distress. After fishing the squirrel out of the pool, he began pressing on his/her chest and sides, hoping to find the lungs with each push. “C’mon little guy. You can’t die,” Gruber says as he works tirelessly to revive the little creature.
Gruber’s efforts pay off when the squirrel takes a breath and opens his or her eyes soon after. He says to the little struggling animal, “I know you probably feel like crap. You were just dead.” The entire, hour-long rescue was captured on video. Prepare to see a hero in action!
