Heroic Road Worker Brings Drowning Kitten Back To Life And Adopts Her

A road worker named Metin Keskin saved a drowning kitten during flash flood in Istanbul, Turkey, and brought him back to life with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Keskin recounted how he came across the kitten when he and his coworkers were sent to clear away floodwaters. The tiny stray kitten was being swept away by heavy rains to the brink of death, when he spotted her and rushed to pick her up. She was motionless, seemingly lifeless, and wasn’t making any sound.

However, Keskin refused to leave the poor baby. Right there on the street, he knelt over her and decided to try mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, in hopes to revive the little kitten.

Keskin started to give the cat chest compression and breathe a few gentle breaths into her mouth. He also massaged her little body to help get the water out of her lungs and warm her slowly.

After a few tense minutes, they cheered in joy and excitement when they spotted a sign of life. The kitten expelled the water through his mouth and let out a weak meow.

Keskin rushed the kitten to an animal hospital where she was nursed back to health, and could fully recover. However, it was not the last time Keskin could see the kitten because he decided to adopt her and give her a forever home.

“She becomes our kitten now, and I’m so happy,” Keskin told reporters at a press conference at the animal hospital.

Thank you for all you did for the kitten. You’re a sweet man with a good heart. We are so happy to know that she is now safe and warm in new home.
