Glynn County Fire Department medics responded Saturday afternoon to a possible drowning at the Neptune Park public pool on the island of St. Simons, where they arrived and found a 4-year-old boy conscious and breathing after receiving CPR from a first responder and possibly a bystander, said Fire Rescue Division Chief Scott Cook.
The boy was conscious and breathing when he was transported by county fire-rescue ambulance to Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick Hospital, Cook said.
Firefighters received a call at 4:52 p.m. of a possible drowning at Neptune Park, 550 Beachview Drive, Cook said. Firefighters said the boy was found underwater and pulled from the pool.
“Apparently a first responder and possibly a bystander assisted with CPR immediately,” Cook said. “We were called to a near-drowning, that the boy was underwater. When our people arrived, he was breathing and conscious.”
This is a developing story.
