An unidentified firefighter desperately tries to give CPR to a dog found collapsed inside a flat in Istanbul, Turkey
Inside the burning flat, one kind-hearted fireman found a dog collapsed on the floor that had been affected by the smoke, and immediately rushed it outside into the fresh air.
He then tried to save its life by administering CPR and the kiss of life although ultimately without success.
Although reports are unclear, it is believed that the dog was alone in the flat at the time of the fire.
In the video footage, the firefighter is seen compressing the small dog’s chest as it lies on the pavement with its eyes closed.
He then performs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the pooch, but it remains unresponsive to the firefighter’s efforts.
Social media users praised the man for trying so hard to save the little dog’s life.
