Alexandria Child Resuscitated at Warwick Pool

On July 1, at approximately 1:34 p.m., units from the Alexandria Fire Department responded to a report of a near drowning at the City of Alexandria’s Warwick Pool, located at 3301 Landover Street. A six-year old child who was participating in a City-sponsored camp was found unresponsive in a four foot deep area of the pool. City lifeguards pulled him out and provided mouth-to-mouth resuscitation prior to the Fire Department’s arrival. The child was breathing by the time Fire Department staff arrived at the scene. The child’s parents were notified and he was responsive and alert upon being transported to Children’s Hospital in Washington, DC. The incident is under investigation by an accident review committee.
