Amy Hooks found the lizard in her pool and jumped into action.With some coaching from her husband Kevin and encouragement from her son Casey, Amy gave heart compressions to the little guy’s chest and it worked!
Amy’s sons can be heard cheering the lizard on by saying, “come on, come on you got this buddy,he waked her through the process and telling her that the lizard has a three-stage heart. “The lizard finally came back to life. Amy did not do mouth to mouth as it turns out it wasn’t necessary.
She had to pump the small chest a few times and would turn him over often to help with the process. It’s good to know that there are still good people out there who would try to save this small reptile. After she performed CPR the family moved the lizard from the shade to a sunny area after it woke up.
