Boy, 2, Found Face Down In Pool Airlifted To Hospital

WOODLAND HILLS (CBS) — A 2-year-old boy found face down in a Woodland Hills swimming pool Tuesday afternoon was airlifted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he was listed in serious condition.

Paramedics were sent to 4600 block of North Cerrillos Drive at 3:24 p.m., Matt Spence of the city fire department said.

The child’s vital signs were stable, and he was apparently conscious as he was being put aboard the helicopter, according to reports from the scene.

Spence said the child is awake and breathing at the hospital, but is listed in serious condition.

    @Cindy: Wow! Everything that happens in this country is about illegals! You’re just another ignorant species! You like many others base your reasonings with the the “illegals are to blame” subject! I bet you also blamed the DUI that caused a 14 year old girl’s life in Irvine on illegals as well, right? You must have changed your opinion when you the white man’s mugshot! Stop posting your stupid and prejudice opinions on here dumb***.

    @Cindy – HOW DARE YOU?????!!!!!????? To take a travesty like this and to turn it into a commentary on YOUR PREJUDICES and ASSUMPTIONS is disgusting and reprehensible. Employ illegals? Where in the article does it say ANYTHING about there being a housekeeper or a nanny? NOWHERE! Where does it mention ANYTHING about a language barrier? That’s right – NOWHERE! Keep your hatred and stupidity off of these boards.
    Oh, and by the way, Cindy, the phrase is “would HAVE”, not “would of”. Why don’t YOU learn English before mocking the perceived lack of language skills of others?

    Am I the only person who finds it disgusting that the kid had to be airlifted to UCLA? LA County MUST do something about the lack of trauma centers in the county!

    What an awful story. Please watch your children in the pool this summer, we don’t need any more of this. I hope the boy is okay, im praying for you!

  • tanya

    Terrible, indeed. Parents need to watch their kids. Question for you, Calyn: what do you think praying is going to do? If there was a “god”, the child would have fallen into the pool and walked out. Or, even better, he wouldn’t have fallen in the pool in the first place. Find better ways to express your hopes for someone to have a speedy recovery. Oh, and since you’re so religious, I hope you don’t eat shellfish. Otherwise you’re an abomination, according to the book.

    Such a sad story! Prayers going out to this 2 year old boy.
