Firefighters and police officers are prepared to sacrifice everything in order to save a life, and it doesn’t matter if the victim walks on two legs or four.
After a fire broke out in an apartment in Pitești, Romania, the local fire department arrived at the scene and managed to rescue the 51-year-old man and his dog from the burning unit. The man had been seriously injured and was rushed to the hospital, and his poor dog, who was lying motionless on the curb, was left behind.
When a local firefighter spotted the dog, however, he ran to the dog’s side and realized the animal was suffering from smoke inhalation. The dog was quickly dying, so Costache Mugurel gave the dog chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Mugurel placed an oxygen mask over the dog’s snout when he noticed the dog began breathing on his own again, and the pup was later taken to a veterinary clinic to recuperate. “Nobody gets left behind,” Mugurel wrote on his Facebook after the video of his heroic actions started spreading on social media.
Watch the entire video below to see the incredible moment this hero revived a dying dog.
