Italian sailor uses mouth-to-mouth to revive drowning kitten

08 August 2016, 19:29

Milan - The Italian coast guard has rescued and revived a drowning kitten at a Sicilian port, after children on shore drew attention to its plight.

A sailor jumped in the sea to rescue the cat, which was floating apparently lifeless in the water, as the coast guard ship entered Marsala port from a patrol mission.

A video released on Friday showed crew members administering mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and massaging the kitten to remove water from its lungs, encouraging it: "Breathe, breathe. Wake up." After a few minutes, the kitten emitted a few weak "meows."

A veterinarian on shore says the kitten is now in good health. He has been given a home at the Marsala maritime district office and has been named Charlie.
