How to revive electrocuted monkey, as demonstrated by fellow monkey

Resusci Anne would likely take issue with his technique, but it's hard to argue with success (slyt, annoying background music). An expert at National Geographic weighs in on the question regarding whether or not the rescuer knows that shaking the rescuee and dropping it in puddled water can reanimate it. Answer: It's difficult to say.

As far as electrocuted monkeys go, that had a happier ending than ‘Curious George and the High-Tension Power Line.’

Came expecting a mood boost of cute animals. Left shaken by the desperation of a monkey pleading with the dead-eyed corpse of their friend, happy ending notwithstanding.

Just going by the timing of the video, which is obviously edited, the injured macaque spend at minimum two minutes without respiration. I'm glad everyone is up and running, but I'm not sure everybody got their higher functions back at the end of this.

Yeah, so belated cw: the video is more than a little disturbing even if the outcome is good.

Is it too late to change the title of this post?
