A 10-year-old boy was not breathing when he was pulled from the water after someone noticed him underwater at a Sea Crest Beach Hotel pool in North Falmouth on Friday afternoon, June 29.
Emergency personnel were notified of a “reported drowning” at 2:45 PM, according to Falmouth Fire Lieutenant Craig B. O’Malley.
Two Falmouth Hospital emergency room doctors happened to be in the area, and one of them began CPR on the boy at the scene, Lt. O’Malley said. By the time paramedics arrived, the boy was breathing on his own.
The boy remained alert and able to breathe on his own during the ambulance ride to Falmouth Hospital, where the crew was met by a MedFlight, which took the boy to a Boston-area hospital.
