Think CPR Is Just For Humans?
Do you think CPR is just for humans? Well if so, you can think again. In this unusual story from Australia it sees a lady giving CPR on a... pigeon!
Gail Daniell really loves animals and has cared for over 50 in her life. She especially loves birds so much so, that when an injured pigeon stopped breathing, she didn’t think twice before administering CPR. She has now named the little pigeon Dennis after Dennis the Menace.
“Denis just stopped breathing and I didn't even think twice, I just started with the CPR," Ms Daniell said.
"I gave him probably three or four little breaths and pumped his little chest a few times and he started to come back to life”.
Gail advised that she learnt CPR from a course she took 10 years ago. It just goes to show that learning CPR can be helpful and unforgettable once learnt.
