A two-year-old girl was admitted to a hospital in Johannesburg in critical condition after she nearly drowned in a pool.
According to Ross Campbell, ER24 spokeswoman, the incident happened Tuesday afternoon at a home in a golf estate in Centurion.
ER24 paramedics arrived at about 14:01 and according to Campbell, another private ambulance service was already on the scene after the girl’s parents called the emergency services.
“Our paramedics helped with advanced life support before the girl was flown by helicopter to a private hospital in Johannesburg for further medical care.”
Campbell said the estate’s security services were also on the scene. The exact circumstances of the incident are not yet clear.
