A SEVEN-year-old girl is fighting for her life in hospital after being rescued from a near-drowning in her hotel pool in Majorca.
Following the event, the child, who was on vacation with her family at the time, was taken by ambulance to an intensive care unit “in a critical state.”
Her ambulance was able to get to the hospital as swiftly as possible since a passage had been cleared by police cars for it.
According to reports, lifeguards discovered the girl lying still at the bottom of the pool and dove in to save her.
She remained in “critical” condition in the paediatric intensive care unit at Son Espases Hospital in Palma, the capital of Majorca, according to sources at the hospital.
Initially, the kid was being to in some local papers as being British; however, reliable hospital sources have stated that she is Irish.
It has been determined that she was staying at the HYB Eurocalas Hotel, which is a four-star establishment located in the resort town of Calas de Mallorca on Mallorca’s eastern coast.
The property markets itself on its website as a family-friendly, all-inclusive aparthotel that is just a ten-minute walk from the beach.
On Monday, shortly after 3.30 o’clock in the afternoon, the alarm was sounded.
“We had a phone around 3.40pm yesterday to say lifeguards had noticed a young girl laying lifeless on the bottom of the pool, and they dove in to rescue her,” a representative for an emergency coordination center maintained by the regional government said.
Because she had gone into cardiac arrest, they conducted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on her after taking her out of the water.
“After arriving at the site, paramedics resumed their efforts to revive her and eventually got her breathing again while she was in the back of the ambulance.
“She was brought to the Son Espases Hospital,”
