Honey bee CPR?

1279 4
I had a Q faint the other day while I was marking her in a marking tube.She was young,just beginning to lay.
I set her on top of a frame and she was surrounded by bees touching her with their antenna and extending their proboscis towards her mouth parts.
First she just laid there,then antenna movement,then quivering,then she stood up,then pulsing abdomen and then she walked down a seam.It took about 7-8 min.
