A young boy remains critically ill in hospital after being pulled unconscious from a swimming pool at his daycare.
The two-year-old boy was rushed to Joondalup Health Campus on Monday morning.
The little boy still remains in a critical condition at Princess Margaret Hospital.
The boy’s carer rushed to neighbour, Keith Morrison, for help.
The fly-in fly-out worker was able to perform CPR for up to 15 minutes before paramedics arrived.
“Hopefully the little fella lives but if I hadn’t known CPR, I wouldn’t have known what to do so it’s very, very important that people learn CPR and know what to do in an emergency.”
Mr Morrison said “A lady came and rattled on the fly screen saying a child had drowned, he ran next door and started CPR.”
“I’m feeling for the parents and I’m feeling for the little girl next door,” he said.
“It’s pretty traumatic for her and most definitely for the parents.”
The father himself had recently updated his first aid training.
No word on how the toddler got into the fenced area.
Our thoughts are with the little boy and his family.
