Woman Revives Pet Lizard with CPR

lizardSALEM, Ore. — Would you know what to do if your beloved pet nearly drowned, and needed to be revived? What if that pet was a reptile?

That was the situation faced by an Oregon woman.

Sherrie Dolezal says bearded dragon lizard named del Sol fell in her swimming pool. The reptile was found floating and not breathing.

Determined to save her cold-blooded friend, Sherrie says she quickly pulled him out and turned him upside down to get water out of his mouth.

She then performed compressions on his tiny chest and blew air into his mouth.
after several minutes, sherrie says del sol came back to life!

“I just grabbed him instantly, and turned him upside-down, and I started pounding him on his back and, and started crying,” Dolezal said. “My great-grandson said, ‘Grandma, I knew you and God worked together on this one,’ ’cause he says, ‘You saved my dragon.'”

Sherrie says she runs a reptile rescue at her home. She has more than 20 reptiles, including lizards and tortoises.
