Rodent Squeezed Back To Life By Pool Guy

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

A pool man goes beyond the call of duty to save a small prairie dog he found floating.

Rich Gruber put the rodent over a pipe and started gently squeezing its sides to get it to spit out the water.

After a few minutes the little guy let out a hiccup and started to breath.

Gruber stayed with him for about an hour until it was up and moving, and then watched it scurry back into the desert.
