CPR saves one-year old child

Great story today about a one-year old child whose life was saved by his parents performing CPR.

Little Mylo Jelley fell into the garden pond and by the time this was discovered he had stopped breathing, luckily his dad was able to pull him out of the water and his mother performed CPR under the guidance of the 999 operator.   Luckily the combination of mouth-to-mouth breaths and chest compressions was exactly what was needed, and even though Mylo was cold and coulourless the CPR kept him alive until paramedics arrived and began advanced treatment.

The full story, including recording of that important 999 call is here
