Police in the US were shocked to see a young man giving CPR to a squirrel on the side of the road.

The officers came across the driver, only known as Chris, crouched over the animal in Brooklyn Park in Minnesota.

Chris had stopped to help the squirrel after he accidentally hit it with his car.

Bodycam footage worn by one of the policemen captured the driver carrying out chest compressions on the fur baby.

The officers reassured the worried man that the squirrel probably "tumbled from the pressure of the car", and wasn't actually struck by his vehicle.

And after a few minutes, the squirrel miraculously jumped back to life and ran away.
