A deputy and fire personnel administered CPR to a drowning victim and restored his heartbeat during an incident in Rancho Cucamonga on June 11, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
At about 8:34 p.m., deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department responded to a call of a drowning in the 7400 block of Carnelian Street.
The victim and a friend were at a pool trying to learn how to swim. They held onto the side as they circled the deep end of the pool. The victim let go of the side and accidentally slipped underwater.
The friend flagged down a citizen, who jumped into the pool and pulled the victim out.
Deputy Kristina Neff-Fergot arrived on scene and immediately began CPR until Rancho Cucamonga Fire Department personnel arrived and took over advanced life support.
While still at the scene, the victim’s heartbeat was restored, and he was transported to a local hospital for further treatment.
