So this boy and his friend were playing around with the return Drain in a Lazy River at this South Carolina Resort. Not thinking it was dangerous, they lifted the grate and his foot got sucked in and stuck. He was under water for 9 MINUTES! After he got stuck, his friend tried to get him out. When he couldn't, he called for help.
Thankfully a correctional officer thought to give him mouth to mouth so he could have some air while being submerged. The hotel shut off the filter system and he was freed! Emergency services revived the boy with CPR and he is alive!
These are things we need to talk with our children about. Just because things don't look dangerous, there are safety features in place for a reason. We shouldn't play with those things... Thankfully, this time it was not fatal!
