This is no time to monkey around.

When one monkey’s friend passed out from an electric shock he received from a railway track in Kanpur, India, he turned into George Clooney (circa ER) and tried to save his friend’s life by administering what looks like CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).

It all plays out in a heart-pumping YouTube video, first with the monkey shaking his lifeless buddy, who appears totally limp when his friend picks him up.

The animal doesn’t respond until his friend starts doing compressions with his mouth onto the injured monkey’s neck and chest. Moments later, the once-paralyzed animal is mobile, which prompts cheers from the gathering crowd on the train platform.

When it looks like his friend is going to make it, the monkey medic slaps his pal on the head a few times, as if to say, “Don’t do that again!”
