Fireman resuscitates goldfish

Just to raise the intellectual level a bit. From here, which looks suspiciously like a Cooncil effort or some such, and is about as exciting as Zenit news ("Today the Pope, in honour of the feast of St George, patron of England, had sherry trifle for pudding."), via here.

A firefighter performed the successful resuscitation of a goldfish which almost expired in a housefire.

Acting sub-officer Brian Todd, 34, and his colleagues put out a blaze that had gutted the living room of a flat in Edinburgh when one of them noticed a blackened fish tank.

The goldfish was lying in the sooty water trying to move one of its gills.
Mr Todd, a keen fisherman, immediately used his expertise to try to save the pet.
