GOOD NEWS MUST-SEE: Firefighter Performs CPR on Dog to Save Its Life
It's always the goal of firefighters to leave no man behind while extinguishing a blaze.
In Romania though, that mantra even extends to "man's best friend."
Recently in the city of Pitesti, a firefighter performed CPR on a dog that had collapsed from smoke inhalation after being removed from a ground-floor apartment fire.
Local journalist Costi Tudor captured the incident in a Facebook video.
Firefighter Costache Mugurel sprung into action to help the dog after its owner was immediately rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. Mugurel performed chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the animal until an oxygen mask became available.
The dog began breathing again and was then taken to a veterinary clinic, where it is said to be in stable condition.
"Nobody gets left behind," Mugurel wrote on his personal Facebook page in Romanian.
