Rick Gruber said he would do the same for anybody.
In this case, the drowning victim last month was a tiny prairie dog (or a squirrel, if CNN is correct).
He did what most people would not. He spent 30 minutes trying to resuscitate the animal, performing chest compressions as best he could.The Phoenix, Ariz. man, whose nickname is now “Squirrel Whisperer,” shot a video of the entire operation hoping that he would catch the moment the juvenile would spit up and come back to life.
“C’mon little guy. You can’t die,” said Gruber, as he tried to revive it.
The treatment worked and the squirrel, or prairie dog, went scampering off into the desert.
