WASHINGTON — A young girl was taken to the hospital after being found unconscious at the bottom of a pool Monday afternoon.
The original call was for a possible drowning at Langdon Park Pool in Northeast D.C., according to D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Vito Maggiolo. But, when paramedics arrived, the 7-year-old was conscious, breathing and alert thanks to the pool staff’s resuscitation efforts.
The girl was in such good shape, paramedics only had to get her to the hospital for a follow-up, Maggiolo added.
A witness who spoke to NBC Washington called the girl’s rescue “miraculous.” The Labor Day scare also happened on a humid afternoon, with temperatures in the 90s.
