Many of us have often heard inspirational stories of soldiers saving lives or helping people in dire situations. In one such incident last week, a group of Thai soldiers found a drowning puppy at a flooded army base garage in the Thai capital of Bangkok. The pup was only two days old and had already turned blue.
In an attempt to save the pup, one of the soldiers — Weeraphon Sukudom — decided to lay the animal down and tried saving him by using the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) technique. A fellow soldier captured the emotional moment and others cheered as Sukudom tried to revive the animal. In the 3.42-minute clip, the soldier is initially seen massaging the chest of the puppy with his thumbs, patting its back and then finally pumping air by breathing into its mouth. Miraculously, the tiny pup gasped to respond to the rescuer and came back to life.
Later, after reviving the pup, Sukudom decided to adopt the pup and named him Champion.
