Monkey saves dying friend from railway lines

No more monkey business: This little guy refuses to give up on his mate

A monkey has seemingly saved the life of a fellow primate after it was hurt on railway lines in India.

The monkey was electrocuted as it walked on high tension wires in Kanpur's railway station, falling unconscious on to the tracks.

As commuters watched from the busy platform, the extraordinary footage shows a fellow primate apparently attempting to resuscitate the animal by repeatedly biting, hitting and dunking him in water.

The electrocuted monkey, a bit soggier and groggier than normal, is eventually revived and the pair are filmed walking away.
