Just three weeks after a child nearly drowned at a South Carolina water park, another child was also rescued.
Rescuers were called to Otter Creek Waterpark earlier this month after a two-year-old girl was found floating in the pool. The child, who was at the pool with a caregiver and a group of other children, was briefly left alone and the girl ran off to play in the shallow end of the pool with other kids. She went underwater and other children tried to pull her out.
Reports say a mother at the pool pulled the child out and summoned lifeguards, who began CPR and cleared the pool. The child eventually regained consciousness and was taken away by ambulance to Greenville Memorial.
Reports say there were about 300 people in the pool with 16 lifeguards on duty.
Last month, at the same pool, three-year-old Naseir Janas Ponders was pulled from the Otter Creek pool with no pulse or respiration, but was resuscitated and has recovered and has since been released from the hospital, reports say.
The Otter Creek pool was closed to the general public for several days, reports say.
