CPR Saves Drowning Child

Children are attracted to the water like a magnet to the North Pole, and sadly, summer time gives rise to many unnecessary drowning deaths.

Besides always making sure your child can swim, and wears a life vest, knowing CPR can reverse a horrible accident.

Last week, a little boy was found in a retention pond.  He had no pulse.  Volunteer fire fighters performed CPR until paramedics arrived, and the boy regained a pulse by the time he reached the hospital.

This was a happy ending, but that’s not always the case.

Children can drown in inches of water, so please, always watch your babies around the water.  And learn CPR.
