Baby aardvark saved by CPR

A quick thinking zookeeper helped save the life of an adorable newborn aardvark.

Female Lotte was not breathing after being born at Poland’s Wroclaw Zoo.

But Zoo keeper Andrzej Miozga performed CPR on the cub for nearly an hour – and amazingly the cub survived.

Sadly, due to the traumatic birth, Lotte’s mom rejected her.

But despite here near death experience, Lotte is doing just fine now and is being cared for round the clock by staff.

She gets bottle fed every two hours and is gaining weight rapidly.
