Completely off topic, but important

For those of you with swimming pools, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure that they are secured and supervise your children at ALL times.

I had to do CPR on an 11 month old infant about an hour ago. My wife and I had gone out for our walk in the neighborhood when a man in his socks came running up to us and asked if we knew CPR. We said we did. I sent my wife ahead and I could only do a fast hop/skip because of my knee. The baby had fallen into the swimming pool. When I arrived, mom and dad had him on the deck of the pool and were attempting CPR. He was unresponsive, pulseless and apneic. I started CPR and within 60 seconds or so, he started having agonal respirations. By the time EMS arrived, he was still unresponsive but had a pulse of 100 and spontaneous respirations of about 10-12 per minute. Please pray for this little baby and the parents. I canít imagine the torment they are going through.

Please keep your pools safe.

You can also be sued if the child happens to break into your property and drown.. Make sure you have a fence or gates around or entrances to the pool. Hope theres a full recovery

From your mouth to G*ds ears. Our prayers are with him. We have children of our own and all I can say is, thank goodness for people like you. Regardless of the outcome, you trully are a hero!

Ever since I've been a lifeguard in my lake community, I've kept up with CPR and First Aid training... Even though I haven't lifeguarded in 4 years!! Fantastic thing to have and I keep it on my resume. It feels great knowing that you can help.

You're a helluva guy Steve, fate was with those people. Truly, a great, great story. I hope that the baby pulls through after a lack of oxygen like that.

Just thought I would post an end (a happy one) to this story. Here is a picture of the little boy that I had to do CPR on. This was taken today. He is very healthy. He has been evaluated by a Neurologist and checked over thoroughly. He has no signs of any deficits at all.

Just wanted to share.

Considering that you and missus spook were on a walk at just the time when someone who knew CPR was needed, I believe that God was also on call along with Bentley's spook.

So its taken care of and I wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you sir for your kind assistance. You've got a new godgrandson in return.

Do you know, that I read this update only after I read and posted my earlier reply ? And sure enough, everything's cool. Before you asked, you were answered.

I knew it !

Sir, in the finest traditions of the fest, it behooves me to ask you to have a nice cold can of german beer on a successful repair with the toddler in question. Perhaps you could have a glass of cold milk instead, I don't think the parents would appreciate beer very much.

Yup, the kid's air intake system was hydrolocked, he did CPR, just the same as an E34.

Fortunately, neither his engine nor his ECU were damaged
