Eight-Year-Old Saves Toddler From Drowning

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 23-Aug-2011

Eight-year-old Jesus Lara noticed a toddler in the water in his Plano apartment and assumed somebody trying to see how long they could go under water without breathing. But then he saw the bubbles stop rising and could immediately tell the toddler was not breathing.

Although there were adults around the pool, none were in the water; a party was going on. He took a deep breath, went under water, retrieved him and yelled for his father.

The toddler's skin had turned blue and he was unresponsive. Adults started CPR and called 911. By the time paramedics arrived, the boy was breathing on his own again.

Firefighters credit Jesus' quick decision to dive and rescue the boy himself as saving the toddler's life. If he had remained int he water even a few seconds longer, paramedics were not sure if he would have survived, reports say.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
