He quickly pulled the drowned bird out of the pool and gave it CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Once he used an air pump to deliver large amounts of air into the bird's lung, the little guy came back to life and made a full recovery.

The bird can be seen flipping on to its side and flapping its wings.
