3rd near drowning in catskills in 24 hours

For the third time in under 24 hours, a child was pulled from a swimming pool.
Sources tell YWN Catskills, that two children, a 22-month old and a 3-year-old, managed to “wiggle their way” through a pool gate, and entered the swimming pool in Cold-Spring Bungalows in Monticello. People heard the 3-year-old screaming, and jumped over the fence to help. The 22-month-old child was pulled from the bottom of the pool in cardiac arrest.
Catskills Hatzolah worked on the child for close to an hour, and managed to regain a pulse.

The child was flown via Lifenet 75 to Westchester Trauma Center in Valhalla, NY, where he is listed in critical condition. His name for Tehillim is Zev Aryeh ben Nechama.
On Friday, YWN Catskills reported about a 14-year-old Bochur who was pulled from a pool in Stolin Camp in Highland NY (Ulster County), and just minutes later a 8-year-old child was pulled from a swimming pool in Ichud Bungalow Colony in Monticello (Sullivan County).
