In a situation that could have ended in tragedy, a two year old’s life was saved. A ten year old girl named Annie, who has Downs Syndrome, recognized that the two year old child was in trouble, having fallen into the pool, and told twelve year old Sophia. Sophia alerted her grandmother Lianne who jumped in and rescued the child using CPR.
“I put him on the ground, and I began CPR. And then he began to gurgle. And when he finally began to gurgle, I rolled him over, tried to get the water out of his lungs,” Lianne Azevedo said. The EMT’s praised Lianne for her fast action that saved the little boy’s life. Little Brady Dones was awake and alert when he went to the hospital, and he’s expected to be okay.
