Family Friend Saves 2-Year-Old After Near Drowning

poolA two-year-old toddler nearly drowned in a pool over the weekend.  The Yuma Fire Department says they were called to a home in the 4600 block of West 27th Place Friday night. 

Two adults who were there told authorities they were distracted for a few minutes and discovered the boy underwater and unresponsive. 

A family friend who knew CPR began chest compressions and rescue breathing.  The child responded and started breathing on his own.  The toddler was transported to Yuma Regional Medical Center for additional evaluation.
