After nearly drowning at a waterpark, a 5-year-old girl was brought back to life by lifeguards, thanks to guests’ quick action.
A FIVE-YEAR-OLD GIRL was rescued by lifeguards after she nearly drowned at a waterpark when two people discovered her floating unconscious.
Two park visitors noticed the girl floating face down and dragged her out.
After the girl stopped breathing, they called for lifeguards, who performed CPR.
At the Adventure World amusement park in Bibra Lake, Western Australia, paramedics were eventually dispatched.
The young girl eventually came to and was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
According to the West Australian, Adventure World CEO Andrew Sharry thanked the two visitors who played a “critical role” in saving her life.
“Earlier this afternoon, two of the closest guests rescued an unsupervised five-year-old girl from the main pool,” he said.
“Our lifeguard immediately checked vitals and started CPR.”
Our First Responders arrived and offered additional assistance.
“Within moments, the girl responded and was stabilized until the ambulance arrived.”
“Our thoughts are with the young girl and her family,” he added.
“We’ve contacted the parents to offer our assistance.”
The Australian girl was taken to the Children’s Hospital in Perth and is now said to be in a stable condition.
“A young girl was helped and thankfully taken to hospital breathing,” one witness wrote on social media.
“The lifeguards and members of the public performed admirably.
It was a dreadful scene.”
Children under the age of 12 must be supervised by an adult at all times, according to the amusement park’s rules.
Hundreds of children and their families were said to be present at the popular park at the time of the incident.
Following the incident, Adventure World stayed open to the public.
