WATCH: Heroic monkey resuscitates his electrocuted friend


Cape Town - A Rhesus macaque monkey made headlines when he resuscitated his friend that was electrocuted at a train station in Kanpur, India. 

The electrocuted monkey was shocked unconscious by the high voltage wires spanning over the railway station, and was laying lifeless between the rails. His friend, however, refused to believe that he was dead and tried everything in his power to save his buddy.

Although the rescue attempt is not textbook-style, and honestly rather vicious, the resuscitation has the desired effect and after a 20 minute struggle the buddies were even able to resume with a grooming ritual.
