Poor cat got stuck in a revolving door at the hospital’s entrance in Istanbul. But thanks to the doctor and his special technique of cardiac massage it was brought back to life. The doctor called the survived cat “miracle” and decided to adopt him as well.
This accident happened last Sunday in a private hospital of Küçükçekmece district, and the whole process was captured on the hospital’s camera.
The cat did stop breathing after being stuck in the revolving door and emergency doctor Halil Akyürek together with colleagues removed the cat from the door and started to make a cardiac massage.
“The cat’s neck was totally stuck. It started having trouble breathing and floundering. I put my head on the back of his head and properly removed it from the door. We started applying cardiac massage right away, and other friends from the hospital also came by. As the cat responded, we stopped the cardiac massage and took the cat to the emergency service. Then I called a veterinary friend, who told us to administer a couple of medicines and instructed us on how to apply them,” Akyürek said.
Akyürek adopted the cat after it recuperated, and named it “Mucize,” the Turkish word for miracle.
“We sent the cat home that day, and I took it to the veterinary the next day. It was issued an identity card, and we named it Mucize. It now became the part of our lives. Even this morning it came and woke me up,” Akyürek said.
Akyürek said that many people sent supporting messages to him and other hospital staff after the incident was spread in news and social media.
Found in almost every corner in Turkey, cats are an inseparable part of the streets and are known for their friendly nature, and are loved and fed by the people
