Bird Brought Back Through CPR
Occurred on May 14, 2018 / Berlin, Maryland, USA
Info from Licensor: "I was visiting my friend when she handed me her parakeet. She said that he was dying and put him in my hand. I held him for a little while, then noticed he had stopped breathing. Being a certified EMT, I know what to do immediately during a situation like this, but I had no idea how to do it on a tiny bird. So, I compensated for his fast heart rate and tiny, fragile body. While doing tiny compressions with my fingertips, my friends recorded and laughed at how ridiculous it seemed, me giving CPR to a pet parakeet. I, not thinking it would work, continued. Suddenly, he popped up which surprised me. Shocked and happy, I jumped. My friends’ faces froze in disbelief."
