Russian firefighters from the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) rescued a cat in Volgograd by performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation and using pressurised oxygen from a canister, Monday. A massive fire broke out in a Volgograd apartment earlier in the day. Firefighters found the barely breathing cat on a stairwell near the door of a flat. They carried the pet outdoors... Еще, where they found its owner crying hysterically for her beloved pet. Firefighters opened an oxygen tank for the cat to breathe in the life-giving gas. One of the rescuers pumped the feline's chest for some time before the cat finally came back to life. The owner left the scene pressing the shocked, but very much alive cat close to her chest.
