Birds often have trouble seeing glass windows or walls, and many actually end up dying after flying and crashing into one at full speed.
So when one Australian dad spotted a kookaburra, a native Australian bird, crash into a glass wall of his home, bounce off of it, and land lifelessly in the family’s pool, he knew it would quickly die if he didn’t step in to help. And after gently fishing the bird out of the water, the determined dad got to work.
At first, the dad began giving the bird chest compressions by pressing down on the bird’s chest with his fingers. After a couple rounds, the dad decided he had to do something more since the bird showed no signs of improvement. He carefully picked the bird up, held open its beak with his other hand and blew air into its mouth.
Unfortunately, even mouth-to-mouth wasn’t enough. In a final attempt to revive the bird, the un-named dad grabbed a compressor, positioned the tube in the bird’s beak, and gave it a few quick bursts of air. Thankfully, it was exactly what the bird needed and it “straight away brought him back to life,” the man’s son said.
The stunned bird hung around its savior for a little while longer after waking up and happily let the man gently massage its back before finally flying away.
