Shortly after 3 p.m., the boy was swimming near the shore of Lake Nacimiento with his parents. Individuals from out of state noticed the child was in trouble, pulled the boy out of the water and performed CPR.

Emergency responders then came out to the scene and continued performing CPR. An ambulance transported the boy to a nearby hospital.

The boy’s current condition is unclear.

CPR training is one of those things everyone should have and hope you never have to use.

Thank God those bystanders were there.

Prayers for the boy and his family it doesn’t sound good if first responders had to continue CPR that means he likely wasn’t breathing for a very long time.
