One day in Arizona, pool contractor Rick Gruber came to work on an otherwise normal day. His task: install a pool heater. But as he arrived he came across a horrifying site. A drowning squirrel. He went to get something to help get the poor creature out of the pool, but when he came back it was submerged and not moving.
Rick began gently pushing on the squirrels stomach to clear its lungs while it rested on PVC pipe.
He placed the squirrel in one of his kneepads, and continued to encourage it take deep breaths.
He was weak, but started to move around a bit.
Amazingly, Rick captured everything on his cell phone for the next hour…when the little guy finally started to feel better.
And managed to walk away, alive!
