ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – South Metro firefighters say a child was rushed to the hospital on Sunday afternoon after the child was pulled from a pond. Firefighters responded to the area near Florida Avenue and Parker Road.
The child was unconscious and not breathing, but officials say Arapahoe County Sheriff’s deputies performed CPR until medics arrived, and they revived them.
The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office says five children, ages 6 years to 8 years old, were playing on an icy pond. Three of them fell through.
An unidentified woman jumped in and saved two of them; a teenager saved the third child who was not conscious.
South Metro Fire Rescue medics revived the unconscious child, SMFR spokesperson Connor Wist told CBS4. The child was conscious during ambulance transport to the hospital, she said.
Update: South Metro is transporting one person to the hospital emergent. Thank you to @ArapahoeSO for your support on this call.
