An Arizona pool man is being lauded after saving the life of a squirrel.

Rick Gruber found the adorable rodent floating in the water while installing a water heater and saw that the creature wasn’t breathing.  Gruber then proceed to give the squirrel CPR.

“I Just gently pushed on his rib cage thinking at some point I’m going to find his lungs,” said Gruber.

Miraculously, after about a minute, the squirrel’s eyes popped open and he started breathing again.

Gruber says that the people at work are no referring to him as “the squirrel whisperer.”

“I know you feel like crap,” Gruber said to the squirrel as it came back to life.  “You were just dead.”

Gruber documented the entire heroic episode in an hour long video.
