When we think about vacation activities, swimming immediately comes to our minds. Both kids and adults can definitely enjoy this recreational activity. But the danger it can bring can’t also be denied, especially for children who don’t know how to swim. Recently, a Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (MDRRMO) member wowed the netizens after he was able to revive a child through Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
This miraculous event has been uploaded by a Facebook page Argao Skimboarding Association. The video immediately gained the attention of the public and some local media outlets.
In the uploaded video, MDRRMO member, Joseph Falcone was currently Lawis Point, Argao, Cebu when the incident happened. Thankfully, MDRRMO held their skimboarding competition on the said place. He performed a CPR on the unconscious four-year-old child. Because of his knowledge and quick response, he was able to save the kid from great danger.
Many people evidently worried about the child’s safety. For a few seconds, all of them thought that the kid wouldn’t make it but to their surprise, the kid regained his consciousness as he gasped for air. People immediately cheered for Joseph’s successful rescue. The background of the video also shows other tourists as they clap and cheer for the child.
If it wasn’t because of Joseph, the kid wouldn’t have any chance of survival. After this, the kid was immediately rushed to the nearest hospital. Without the MDRRMO member’s help, things wouldn’t definitely end well. Many people immediately thanked him for his quick actions.
