Soldiers are trained to stay calm in extremely stressful situations, so when one Thai soldier discovered a dying two-day-old puppy he never panicked, but did whatever he could to save it.
According to local reports, the days-old puppy nearly drowned in a downpour and was turning blue by the time it was found in a garage by the soldiers’ barracks. One of the soldiers, Weeraphon Sukudom, grabbed the puppy and quickly got to work trying to revive it.
Sukudom wrapped the puppy in a towel, then started gently patting and shaking the puppy. Instead of giving up when that failed, the soldier decided to try mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. After a few attempts, the puppy’s airways were finally cleared and it began breathing again.
Now, Sukudom is being hailed a hero by more than 12.6 million people around the world who saw what he did to save the puppy in a video that was posted on Facebook. Sukudom, however, explained that it was his first time ever performing CPR.
Watch the entire video below to see the amazing moment this soldier brought a puppy back to life.
