WATCH | Police stumble across man apparently giving CPR to a squirrel after a near miss

Every squirrel has his day. Apparently.

Police in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota were understandably surprised as the came across a man they thought was performing CPR on a squirrel lying motionless on the ground.

As officers get out of the car and ask the young man what's going on, he replies, "I kind of ran over him a little bit. Yeah, so you know, try to help him out."

As the officers and the man continue to talk, the squirrel slowly starts to come around. Suddenly the squirrel leaps away as one officer crows out, "You saved his life dude!"
