This is the remarkable moment a police dog performed CPR to "save the life" of his handler.

The clip, filmed by the police force in Madrid, shows the handler falling to the ground.

Poncho ran to his side and jumped on his chest to attempt to wake him, before pushing him on to his side.

The officer still doesn't move, so the dog jumps up and down on his chest four times before listening for signs of breathing.
