Meha the white rhino orphan was having surgery in Mpumalanga, South Africa, to have her horns removed when the sedative caused a serious reaction.
The vets and wildlife officers immediately sprang into action when Meha’s heartbeat started plunging.

And here are the highlights:
Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary co-founder, Chris de Bruno Austin, lies on the floor next to Meha and breaths into her nose while colleagues perform chest compressions.
As four men perform chest compressions on the animal, someone can be heard shouting, “oxygen, we need oxygen”.
Dramatic video footage of the resuscitation was captured showing the power required to get the rhino’s heart beating again.
After several desperate minutes, the rhino finally started to breath again on her own.
