Toddler in critical condition after near-drowning in Haleiwa


A 1-year-old boy was listed in extremely critical condition following a near-drowning incident in Haleiwa.

The boy was with family members Saturday evening at a beach off Ka Waena Road, near the Rock Piles surf spot, when he apparently wandered into the ocean, said Fire Department spokesman Capt. Carlton Yamada.

HFD received the initial call at 5:56 p.m. While a rescue crew was on route to the beach, people at the beach found the child underwater. An off-duty lifeguard performed CPR on the unresponsive boy until firefighters arrived at 6:02 p.m.

The firefighters continued CPR until paramedics arrived and transported the child, still unresponsive, to Kahuku Medical Center, Yamada said.
