Firefighter Resuscitates Kitten

(YouTube link)

Firefighter Cory Kalanick always has his helmet cam on during fire calls, and so do many of his colleagues. In the case of a house fire in Fresno a few weeks ago, the video recorded the rescue of a kitten overcome by smoke.  

“I looked down and you can actually see the cat shining in the spotlight of my flashlight.  And I looked back and that's when I saw the cat and grabbed him,” said Cory Kalanick, the firefighter who found the kitten.

The kitten was limp as Kalanick picked it up and took it outside.  He grabbed a mask and an oxygen tank, setting the kitten on his glove to protect it from the hot asphalt.  After pouring water on him and using an entire tank of oxygen, within 15 minutes, Kalanick massaged life back into the tiny animal.  He affectionally nicknamed "Lucky the Cat."

Kalanick edited the video to resemble a movie trailer. You can see more of the raw video with the news story. Link  -via PetaPixel

I salute the firefighter for his compassion, bravery and for helping the kitty. Must confess I have mixed feelings about the "vegan" and "tree-hugger" edits. I'm glad raw video is available.
