This is the moment firemen rescue five unconscious puppies from a burning factory and perform CPR on the pups before their grateful mum runs onto the scene.
The incident occurred in Mei Village in the Xinwu District of east China’s Jiangsu Province after firefighters received a call warning them a factory was burning.
Twelve firemen and two fire engines were sent to the scene and they found the fire was in a locked room. They broke into the room and managed to extinguish the fire, but they found five unconscious puppies inside the building.

In the video, a firefighter can be seen working to try to resuscitate one of the puppies, performing CPR and cleaning it with water.
The clip then shows other firefighters carrying more puppies to safety before their mother can be seen with them. Local media report the firemen shouted “it’s their mum” when the mother arrived.
Local media report all five puppies survived. The fire was reportedly caused by a machine in the factory.
PETA Asia press officer for China, Keith Guo told Asia Wire :”Wuxi fire brigade’s determination and compassion likely saved these dogs from a horrifying end. PETA reminds everyone to take animals into consideration when disasters occur.”
