It was an ordinary Sunday at the North Reading Police Department when a woman rushed into the building and said that her puppy had stopped breathing.
The woman, Megan Vitale, said that her 9-week-old Saint Bernard puppy named Bodhi had gotten a piece of food lodged in its throat. When her acquaintance brought the dog into the station, it was limp and unresponsive.
Several officers rushed out from around the counter and started giving the pup back blows and chest compressions.
After ten harrowing minutes of emergency resuscitation procedures, the obstruction finally became dislodged and the dog started breathing again.
