'The Office' Helps A Student Save A Drowning A Squirrel

By Isabella Lovric

If you were ever looking for an excuse to binge-watch 'The Office', here is your flashing sign!

Imagine college student, Natalie Belsito's surprise recently when she looked out of her friend's dorm room to find a drowning squirrel. 

"I couldn't just leave it, you know?" Belsito told CMU newspaper. 

"It definitely was drowning because it was really slow when we saw it and it started to dip its head under the water."

I went down there with a hockey stick to try to pull it out, but that wasn’t really working."

When all hope was nearly gone, Ms Belsito's knight in shining armour appeared and helped scoop the unconscious squirrel out from the pond.

So, what's a girl to do? Call on her vast 'The Office' knowledge and all it taught her about CPR, naturally!  

"Honestly, when I was doing it, I was thinking of the episode of "The Office" when they do CPR," she said.

"I was literally singing that song as I tried to do it.” 

After her hour-long attempt, the squirrel came back to life and was released a few hours later!

"It was a super cool feeling to know that I saved an innocent life," Belsito said.

"I watched a lot of Animal Planet as a kid, but the CPR part was literally all from that episode in The Office."

Looks like we might take a few days off work to catch up on some TV time.
