After nearly drowning at a waterpark, a 5-year-old girl was brought back to life by lifeguards after guests’ quick actions saved her life.
A FIVE-YEAR-OLD GIRL was rescued by lifeguards after nearly drowning at a waterpark when two people discovered her unconscious in the water.
Two park visitors dragged the girl out after spotting her floating face down in the water.
After the girl stopped breathing, they alerted lifeguards, who performed CPR.
At the Adventure World amusement park in Bibra Lake, paramedics were eventually dispatched.
After regaining consciousness, the young girl was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
According to the West Australian, Adventure World CEO Andrew Sharry thanked the two guests who played a “pivotal role” in saving her life.
“An unsupervised five-year-old girl was retrieved from the main pool by the two closest guests early this afternoon,” he said.
“Our lifeguard immediately checked vitals and began CPR.”
Our First Responders arrived and provided additional assistance.
“The girl reacted quickly and was stabilized until an ambulance arrived.”
“Our thoughts are with the young girl and her family,” he added.
“We’ve contacted the parents to express our support.”
The Australian girl was taken to Perth’s Children’s Hospital and is now in a stable condition, according to reports.
“A young girl, she was helped and fortunately taken to hospital breathing,” one witness wrote on social media.
“The lifeguards and the general public did an outstanding job.
It was a dreadful sight.”
Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times, according to the amusement park’s rules.
When the incident occurred, hundreds of children and their families were said to be present at the popular park.
Following the incident, Adventure World remained open to the public.
