New Delhi - Onlookers at a train station in northern India watched in awe as a monkey brought his fellow monkey companion back to life after being electrocuted on the rail tracks.

The unconscious monkey fell down between the tracks, apparently after touching high-tension wires at the train station in the northern Indian city of Kanpur.

His companion came to the rescue and was captured on camera lifting the friend's motionless body, shaking it, dipping it into a mud puddle and biting its head and skin - until the monkey came to after a few minutes.

The first monkey, completely covered in mud, opened its eyes and began moving again.

Crowds of travellers on Sunday watched in amazement, filming and snapping pictures as the animal saved his friend.
