(ANSA) – BRESCIA, AUGUST 21 – A child aged almost 5 years has taken the risk of drowning in the pool of Sirmione's residence in the province of Brescia, where he stayed with his family.
The parents had not noticed that the son had fallen into the water. They were the parents, led by a telephone operator from Bergamo, to start the cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers and to restart the heart of the child, which was immersed in the pool, in a cardiac arrest. The little Englishman of 5 years old spent three days in a farm in Sirmione with his family when he left his parents this morning. The mother and the father – as explained by Areu (the urgency company) – found him a few minutes later, immersed in the swimming pool. Thanks to the help of the Bergamo operating room, they managed to restart the heartbeat of the child. In a few minutes, helicopters from Brescia and Bergamo arrived, bringing the child to the citizens of Brescia, where he is now admitted to intensive care.
