Arizona pool repairman Rick Gruber saved a squirrel from drowning and gave him CPR, 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 (him) resting.

“I know you probably feel like crap. You were just dead,” Gruber said after (he) opened (his) eyes.

The round tailed ground squirrel eventually coughed up some water and scampered off after (he) recovered.
