DUBAI – A two-year-old boy who nearly drowned in a hotel pool in Fujairah has been rescued, thanks to an “angel” lifeguard who quickly rushed to save him.
The boy’s family were by the pool when the incident took place.
“My first reaction was to perform CPR. I followed protocol, gave him five initial breaths and thankfully was able to resuscitate him,” said Angel Nakabiito, the lifeguard at Mirage Hotel Fujairah.
“My training is still fresh, so I was able to perform this perfectly. I’m extremely happy and proud of myself, because I saved a life!” Nakabiito added.
For her incredible efforts to save the toddler, Nakabiito was honoured by the UAE Ministry of Interior, the hotel, and training centre Blue Guard ME.
She received a certificate of appreciation from the Ministry of Interior, a letter of recognition from Mirage Hotel Fujairah, and a lifetime lifeguard refresher training and license renewal from Blue Guard ME.
Commenting on the incident, Waleed Sotouhi, Executive Assistant Manager at Mirage Hotels Group, said: “Thanks to the continuous training of our lifeguards, the child’s life was saved. The result of that incident has made me very proud of our team’s rapid response.” ICA/Expat Media
