Footage of a police K9 performing CPR on a ‘lifeless’ police officer really has to be witnessed to be believed.
It features an endearing and exceedingly well-trained dog named Poncho wearing a harness and blue police light.
Poncho’s trainer pretends to feint and lays down on a mat on the ground. Poncho is discharged and springs over to the officer, instantly jumping high up and down on his diaphragm, mimicking the cardiopulmonary resuscitation method to roars of laughter from the crowd.
Then Poncho, wriggling all over and stumpy tail wagging at 75 miles per hour, appears to check for evidence of breathing or a pulse.
He cuddles up to his handler and sets his face on the man’s cheek. At last, the officer awakens and Poncho couldn’t be more thrilled.
Although it’s peerless to Poncho’s off-the-scales adorableness, a new automated device pledges to save untold lives, assuring patients receive unimpeded chest compressions on their way to the hospital.
Statistics prove that the earlier CPR is given, the higher the chances of survival.
Actually, the American Heart Association estimates that 100,000 to 200,000 lives of children and adults could be saved each year if CPR were conducted early enough.
