An Italian coastguard has successfully given CPR to a “motionless” kitten pulled out of the Mediterranean Sea.

A group of children notified authorities after spotting the kitten floating in the water near the port of Marsala in southern Italy.

According to the coast guard’s Facebook page, a crew member dived into the water and retrieved the “lifeless” cat before performing mouth-to-mouth and gentle chest compressions.

After a few minutes the cat began to expel water and finally let out a faint meow.

Once the boat returned to land the cat was checked by a vet, who declared it to be in good health.

The coast guard adopted the lucky kitty, naming him Charlie.
