A man has gone to extraordinary lengths to save the life of a kookaburra he found floating lifeless in his backyard pool.
Incredible vision has emerged of the moment the man gave the kookaburra CPR, which included using an air compressor to bring it back to life.
‘My dad was in his car when he saw the bird hit the glass wall and land in our pool in which [it looked like] he drowned and was close to dying,’ the man’s son told the Daily Mail.
‘My dad straight away got the bird and formed CPR on him/her. The CPR was working okay but he needed something more strong so he brought something else into the scene,” he continued.
‘This thing pumped large amounts of air very fast. My father placed the tube in the bird’s mouth and turned it on which straight away brought him back to life!’
The boy said after failed attempts at resuscitating the bird, which included blowing air into the bird’s beak and pressing on its chest, his dad brought in the air compressor. A few puffs and the Kookaburra was back to normal.
His proud son can be heard exclaiming: ‘Dad saved a kookaburra. That’s amazing!’
What a hero!
