Zoo staff save drowning baby lemur with CPR!

I saw this story on the Today Show this morning and it warmed my heart! Poor little Hudini, a 5-week old baby lemur was frolicking on the rocks with his parents when he lost his footing and slipped into a moat’s cold water. Ring tailed lemurs cannot swim and don't even like water, so this poor little guy was in bad shape! He slipped under the water and dissapeared, while his parents frantically scanned the water with panic-stricken mannerisms. Shortly after, a zoo staff person rushed over and pulled the little guy out of the water, and luckily brought him back to life via CPR!! Amazing and so heartwarming! Read the full story from the Today Show website.
