Tragic end for Durban boy who was resuscitated after near-drowning
A four-year-old Durban boy died hours after being resuscitated after a near-drowning experience in a residential pool on Sunday.
Rescue Care spokesman Garrith Jamieson said two paramedics were dispatched to a home in Montclair, south of Durban, on Sunday afternoon to attend to the child.
"On arrival paramedics found the lifeless body of a four-year-old little boy. Advanced life-support paramedics worked tirelessly to resuscitate the little boy and after some time managed to regain a pulse," said Jamieson.
"The child was rushed to a nearby hospital for further care."
Jamieson told TimesLIVE on Monday that the child had died during the night.
It is not known how the child ended up in the pool.
