Dogs feel helpless in accidents. Sadly, they are the least priority during rescue missions.
Kudos to the firefighting team of Los Angeles Fire Department for saving a senior dog from a raging fire.
Crystal Lamirande arrived home on a Tuesday to see that her apartment building in Santa Monica was on fire. It was a harrowing sight for a fur mom who feels helpless in saving her 10-year old dog, Nalu, a Bichon-Shih Tzu mix. The smoke was too thick for Crystal to go inside the building to get her poor pup. All she can do is to cry while waiting for someone to rescue her precious dog.
After a few minutes, firefighters from the Los Angeles Fire Department bravely entered the burning building to put off the fire and to rescue the poor pup. When Nalu was found by the firefighters, he was not breathing and unconscious.
The firefighters didn’t give up on Nalu. One firefighter gave the dog CPR for 20 minutes until there’s a sign of life. Crystal, on the other hand, is trying to talk to Nalu while the firefighter is giving him a mouth-to-snout resuscitation.
When Nalu started breathing, an oxygen mask was put on his snout to help him breathe. He was immediately rushed to the nearby veterinary hospital to continue his recovery. He was put in an oxygen chamber for 24 hours and was released the following day.
To see Nalu wagging his tail after he has been revived is a sign of relief for the whole firefighting team.
Watch this video to see how Nalu was revived by the firefighters:
Crystal can’t contain her happiness when her beloved dog was put back to life. She treats Nalu as a family member.
You still have beautiful years, Nalu, get well soon!
