16-Year-old suffers non-fatal drowning in pool in Bonaero Park east of Johannesburg

15 December 2018 | From Arrive Alive


A 16-year-old girl is in a critical condition following a drowning incident in Bonaero Park east of Johannesburg this afternoon. 

Shortly after 1pm on Saturday afternoon, paramedics from ER24 arrived at the residence where bystanders were busy performing CPR on the girl. Paramedics from ER24 continued with advanced life support intervention and after some time managed to regain a pulse. The girl was then rushed to a nearby hospital for further medical care.

It is understood that the girl and friends were playing in a pool at a residence. They noticed that the girl was not coming up from under the water and immediately called for assistance and initiated CPR. An ER24 Contact Centre nurse stayed on the line and provided telephonic assistance until the paramedics arrived on scene.

The circumstances surrounding the incident is not yet known.
