An adorable kitten who was drowning on a roof during a Malaysian typhoon has survived after a firefighter gave it chest compressions.
The tear-jerking video shows the fluffy kitten lifted from a pink towel by a firefighter known as Amirul in Sungai Petani, a town in north-west Kedah, Malaysia.
Amirul, who works at the Sungai Petani Fire and Rescue Station, starts gently performing CPR on the animal's lifeless body and people can be heard murmuring behind the camera as he tries to bring the cat back to life.
