Friday, August 8, 2014, 6:40 PM - Earlier this week, Del Sol the bearded dragon had a bit of a scare.

His owner, Sherrie Dolezal of Oregon, found him floating face up, unconscious in a pool.

"I just grabbed him instantly, and turned him upside-down, and I started pounding him on his back and -- and started crying," she recalls.

After several minutes of CPR, Del Sol started breathing again.

She says she calls herself the 'Reptile Rescuer.'

Del Sol appears to be doing fine after his ordeal.
