CPR Saves Toddler’s Life After Near Drowning

SPRING HILL – A 3-year-old little girl is lucky to be alive today, after she fell into a pool and nearly drowned.

Officials say a family member located the toddler floating in an in-ground pool at a residence on Hoban Ave. around 10:30 a.m. this morning.

The child was blue and not breathing when she was pulled from the water, but the child’s aunt performed CPR and resuscitated her before Fire Rescue arrived on the scene.

The child was transported locally for treatment and then later transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, where doctors specialize in pediatric trauma care.

  • Let me add a few more words to bugman’s post. Place extra locks on doors up high where kids can’t reach them. May look funny to some & perhaps be inconvenient till you get used to it , but a keyed lock is also a life saver when placed up high. Don’t leave key in lock.
    God bless the aunt & I wish a fast recovery for little one.
