With His Friend

Full story, photos, comments:
Arizona pool repairman Rick Gruber saved a squirrel from drowning and gave
KFOR News reports.
"I just gently pushed on his rib cage then squeezed his sides, thinking at some
point I’m gonna find his lungs," Gruber said.
Gruber squeezed its sides with it resting on a plastic pipe until the squirrel
started breathing and moved around after a minute or two. He moved it to a
kneepad to rest and taped it resting.
"I know you probably feel like crap. You were just dead," Gruber said after it
opened its eyes.
The round tailed ground squirrel eventually coughed up some water and scampered
off after it recovered.
