Toddler in serious condition after nearly drowning at Ala Moana

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:40 a.m. HST, Jul 07, 2014

A good Samaritan helped to save a 2-year-old boy who nearly drowned on Sunday at Ala Moana Beach Park, a spokeswoman for the Emergency Medical Services Department said.

The Samaritan pulled the boy from the water about 3:30 p.m. and began CPR with lifeguards, and the rescuers were able to revive the boy's pulse, the spokeswoman said.

Paramedics took the boy to a hospital in serious condition.

The spokeswoman said another young child was watching the boy when he got into trouble.

This is the second near drowning of a toddler in less than a week. The other was at a swimming pool. Parents, watch your kids. Don't let another child watch them. I hope this boy fully recovers soon.

What were the parents thinking??? Absolutely nothing. That's the problem: parents like that aren't capable of a productive thought process
