A Turkish man saved a puppy by using CPR after a piece of food got lodged in its throat causing it to faint and collapse on the ground. The video of the saviour's act has gone viral on social media. The incident took place in the northeastern Rize province on the Black Sea coast.
Shopkeeper Yakup Gor sought help from Omer Yilmaz when the small dog stopped breathing. Yilmaz dislodged some stuck sausage from the puppy's throat before performing chest compressions on the animal and CPR, which helped it to revive.
"I know how it feels to lose your breath because I have experienced it [myself]. I could not resist helping that puppy," Yilmaz told local media.
"Shopkeepers in the area often feed local stray dogs," he said, adding: "I like taking care of them. Other shopkeepers also help them."
