This video ought to brighten your day. The Brooklyn Park Police bodycams caught something on their camera and for once we really are glad it isn't blood and gore. They captured the sweet moment between a young man and a dying squirrel and it will make you sigh with gladness.
The officers pulled up to the location on receiving a call from the Minneapolis suburb. They notice a car stopped in the middle of the street with the driver side open and a man sitting next to the curb. The man's attention had been captured by a squirrel and that in itself was a source of puzzlement for the law enforcement officers who went to inquire about the situation.
"Is he giving him CPR?" The officers are heard talking among themselves. "I think he is! Look at him!" one of the officers is heard exclaiming after he sees the man applying jabs of pressure to the critter's chest. The driver seeing the attention his act has garnered stands up and sheepishly admits to the officers: "I kind of ran him over a little bit, so you know I am trying to help him out."
Meanwhile, the officers too are in a mood to help and helpfully ask if the squirrel has been 'squished' anywhere else and whether the tires hit him. The young man says he doesn't think so or else 'he would've popped'. The policemen then advise him to turn the squirrel on its belly and stroke its back. Seems like the stroking did the trick and eager to be on its way the critter took off much to the delight of the three.
Before leaving, one of the officers even joked that they would recommend the young man for a life-saving award. This heartwarming exchange on the curb has been viewed over 381,000 times with viewers commending the young man for his kindness.
