In a video that went viral on Twitter last week by the Municipal Police of Madrid, an officer is shown falling to the ground and landing on his back. A voice called out for immediate medical intervention and a K-9 officer named Poncho ran to his side, jumping up and down on the officer, mimicking chest compressions.
According to the organization, they taught Poncho the steps for performing CPR. Pedro even appears to check if his patient is breathing and then returns to his chest compressions by using his weight on the man’s chest.
The video’s purpose is directed at encouraging pet adoptions.
At the end Pedro does receive a treat. Dogs are truly our best friends.
Check out the video:
