Hi all,
Not wanting to put a dampner on the weekend but I just wanted to share something with all the parents, grandparents, uncles and aunties etc.

I was travelling home from work this afternoon and came across a lady holding a baby in her arms. To cut to the chase the bub had been left in the bath and had drowned. I started CPR and called he Ambo's and last report was that the Bub was in a critical condition in ICU.
I don't want to have anyone go through what this poor lady and her husband are going through now.
PLEASE be diligant when our little one are in the bath, pool or any body of water.
Troy

Oh that is so sad, my heart goes out to the family, and to you too. Well done for starting and knowing CPR. My Hubby has just completed a Kids first aid course, it is something that all parents should be encouraged to do.

As a nurse in a hospital icu department i know the importance of the first few minutes in an emergency. Especially for kiddies. Sounds like you kept your head and did everything you could.

Good on you mate! I Have a 4 year old and a 11 week old. We never let them out of our sight!
but it is oh so easy to do so. When the 4 year old(Cooper) runs off into the bush, we panic! Generally he has the dog with him but we still freak out

I presume you are a medico of some description. What you do is unbelieveable. We reciently had our baby undergo a hernia operation and it was very successful. The whole process was excellent and the hospital staff were fantastic.
