Video: Monkey Saves Electrocuted Friend

Here is remarkable footage of one monkey reviving his fallen companion. Through hard efforts and applying various techniques, including a classic first-aid maneuver, the monkey gets success. (Note: Some may find parts of the video disturbing but ultimately it has a positive outcome.)

Here is a second video (more informative) that was just referred to me…

Yogic Perspective

Just as we should aim to always refine the human mind, the yogis advocate that animals should also be trained in the highest way possible. To this end, various yogis have talked of the importance of teaching basic elements of meditation to the more developed animals. This would not be for relaxation per se, but for them to actually attune their minds toward subtle, spiritual vibrations. When a monkey has this much concern for his friend’s life and comes up with unique ways to revive him (placing the animal in water was especially helpful), then certainly this monkey has the capacity for learning meditation, under the right conditions.

Hero monkey spends 20 minutes resuscitating his friend after he is knocked out by electric rails…and SAVES him before train pulls in 

Primate performs textbook first aid move to save stricken friend

A monkey turned life-saving hero after spending 20 minutes resuscitating his friend who had suffered an electric shock at an Indian railway station and was in danger of being run over by a train.

The unlucky victim had been climbing on high tension overhead cables when he zapped himself unconscious and landed in a heap on the tracks.

Things were looking grim until another monkey sprang into action hauling his friend up, shaking him, dunking him in water and even biting him on the head in a desperate bid to bring him round.

But still the wounded animal refused to wake up forcing the primate paramedic to take the drastic action of dunking him in a pool of water next to the tracks.

Happily that seemed to work and after some 20 minutes out cold the wounded monkey slowly opened its eyes while his friend hauled him off to a safe spot moments before a train pulled in.

Delighted commuters standing on the platform at the station in India’s northern city of Kanpur filmed the action on mobile phones and cheered as the rescue unfolded.

And as if saving his life wasn’t enough the hero monkey even treated his friend to an impromptu grooming session by the side of the tracks.
