Without a second’s thought, Matthew pulled the child from the water and immediately administered Cardiopulminary Resuscitation (CPR).
Hotel staff arrived within minutes, followed by paramedics. Both groups praised Matthew for his speedy response and effective CPR techniques, which they said saved the two-year-old's life.
The toddler was visiting the hotel with his grandparents who had stopped briefly to speak with someone. With their backs turned for only seconds was time enough for their grandson to nearly drown. The grandparents felt supreme gratitude for Matthew's knowledge of CPR and his quick, life-saving actions.
