TFD responds to call about unresponsive child | News
Paramedics with Tucson Fire responded yesterday evening to a call in the Golf Links and Wilmot area, about an unresponsive child.
The call came from a mother who reported her two year old daughter was not responding. According to TFD the mother left her five-year-old son and two-year-old daughter taking a bath while she changed clothes in another room.
The mother said she came quickly when she heard her son yell ‘lifeguard’, that was when she noticed her daughter was unresponsive. She called 911 and began CPR.
When crews arrived on scene the girl was breathing but lethargic. According to TFD Paramedics they transported the girl to a local hospital for further evaluation.
Tucson Fire would like to remind everyone that adult supervision is the best possible way to prevent an accident from happening. And that knowing CPR will give those supervising a 3 – 5 minute head start while waiting for emergency crews to respond.
