The incredible video out of India, showing one monkey desperately trying to revive another, who had been electrocuted, is both heartwarming and scientifically important.

The rescuer attempts multiple means to revive the injured monkey, including pushing him or her, picking them up, biting and dunking in water.

Finally, as the Telegraph reports, the injured monkey awakens. His friend seems very relieved and pats them on the back.

This is not some sort of canned response by the rescuer. Clearly, they are concerned with the condition of the other monkey. This shows a level of compassion, concern, intelligence and thought.
