    Mystery hero saves lagoon toddler

    Post by Steph on Tue Apr 13, 2010 2:51 am

    An ambulance service has called for a mystery man, whose "swift" actions saved a toddler from drowning, to come forward.

    The 15-month-old boy is recovering in hospital after slipping into the lagoon by a roadside in Liden, Swindon on Monday afternoon.

    Great Western Ambulance Service (Gwas) wants the mystery member of the public, who gave vital mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, to come forward and be thanked in person.

    The service received several 999 calls shortly after 4pm reporting the toddler had gone into the water, alongside the A419.

    Gwas sent two paramedics in rapid-response vehicles, backed up by two ambulances and an officer, with the first crew on scene within seven minutes of the first call.

    The baby was out of the water by the time they arrived, but had gone into cardiac arrest.

    However, the courageous passer-by was already giving mouth-to-mouth, supported by the ambulance call handler giving advice over the phone.

    The baby was taken to Great Western Hospital by ambulance, accompanied by his mother.

    He had started breathing by himself again by the time they arrived at hospital, but he was taken to the paediatric unit for further treatment and assessment.

    There was no time to take the man's name at the scene as the priority was getting the child to hospital. A Gwas spokesman added: "We welcome the opportunity to thank him in person, and I'm sure he would want to know the outcome."
