Infant Saved From Pond?

Post by Sige »

http://www.castanet.net/edition/news-st ... htm#133513

From the article:
A nurse happened to be on scene and helped with the child until fire crews arrived. They then wrapped the baby in blankets to keep it warm until an ambulance was able to take both the child and its mother to hospital for observation.


I get that the water is really cold right now but does anyone other than me think this was a tad extreme? I mean wouldn't you just grab your kid and dry them off and get them home to warm up? Of course, this is assuming that the guardian was watching the child and was able to get it out of the water as soon as it got wet...?

I suppose it may depend on the kid sucking water into it's lungs or just getting wet.

Like...how on earth does a stroller just roll in to a pond without the mother noticing in time to stop it ?

exactly? how steep is this hill they stopped on? why did they even take a 7 month old in a stroller to the park and leave it unattended near the pond? how close were they to the water/ and why??
Me thinks these are two dopper parents smoking a dubie and not paying attention to the situation at hand

Accidents happen. I'm sure every parent has lost their child in the supermarket before. Same sorta thing.
