An Arkansas chicken was saved when its owner's relative gave it mouth-to-mouth after being found face down in a deep puddle.

Jackie Calhoun came home for lunch Jan. 31 to find Boo Boo the chicken floating in the backyard of their Arkadelphia home.

He and his wife Becky tried to save the bird, with no luck.

Jackie's sister, Marian Morris, happened to stop by just then. The retired nurse attempted mouth-to-mouth and Boo Boo's eyes popped open.

After 15 minutes of CPR it started to liven up.

The Arkadelphia Siftings Herald News reports Boo Boo spent the night in a cardboard box with food, water and a heater to keep it warm.

The next day it started making noise and was returned to the chicken yard.
