Narmadapuram (Madhya Pradesh): In a shocking incident, a police officer in Narmadapuram, was spotted giving CPR to save the life of a snake that was trapped in a pipe on Thursday. The incident reported in Semari Harichand city, which may be the first of its kind in the country, was captured on camera and is now going viral on social media, leaving netizens in disbelief.
The test began when a snake found itself stuck in a pipeline. As rescuers arrived at the scene, they decided to use a unique approach to save the trapped reptile. They mixed a dilute pesticide solution with water and introduced it into the pipeline, causing the snake to lose consciousness.
Once the snake was unresponsive, the police officer Atul Sharma proceeded to administer CPR, a life-saving technique often used on humans. With great care, he performed chest compressions and mouth-to-snout rescue breaths.
To the amazement of onlookers, the snake gradually showed signs of life and began to regain consciousness. After providing several rounds of CPR, Atul successfully revived the snake. The snake was soon free from the pipeline and was released into a safer habitat.
Atul Sharma, who has been actively involved in animal rescues since 2008 and has saved nearly 500 snakes to date.
