NORTH MIAMI (CBSMiami) — An infant’s life is in jeopardy after a near drowning in a North Miami swimming pool.
It happened Saturday afternoon near N.E. 127th Street and N.E. 2nd Avenue.
According to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, the infant was found in a backyard swimming pool. When police arrived, they started CPR and transported the baby to the hospital in critical condition.
A neighbor across the street, Lubin, had just come home from church when he saw the police activity. He’s friendly with the child’s father.
“What I know, mostly, the man is a caring father,” he said. “Because I speak to him often and, man, this is devastating.”
