Toddler Drowns in Family Pool in North Hollywood

A toddler died at a hospital Sunday, less than an hour after he was found floating in a North Hollywood swimming pool, Los Angeles police said.

Police were called to a home in the 5900 block of Craner Avenue at 3:17 p.m. about a missing child, said Lt. Brian Morrison of the LAPD’s North Hollywood Division.

Officers arrived three minutes later and found the toddler in the home’s swimming pool, Morrison said. Officers began lifesaving measures, and Los Angeles fire officials also responded to the scene, Morrison said.

The toddler was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead about 4:10 p.m., Morrison said.

The pool had been searched before police arrived, but the water was murky, Morrison said.

“The pool was cloudy — algae, probably, from the recent heat wave,” Morrison said.

The death was being treated as an accidental drowning, he added.

Certificate Code Validation

Authorized Training

National training providers such as the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association have no authority to certify any other providers training programs or curriculum other than their own local training centers.

No logos from any other national training provider will appear on CPRfundraising.com's certificates of completion or training certification cards.

Training Standards

CPRfundraising.com training programs have been modeled after the Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) national guidelines for Bystander or Community level CPR training.

All training is OSHA compliant. Requirements for CPR training are issued by individual employers and educational institutions. CPRfundraising.com training certification's should not be used for Healthcare Provider Level training requirements or if you will be working as a childcare provider.

Disclaimer

Online training participants may find it useful or beneficial to participate in a hands-on skill review session, at the conclusion of their online training, to reinforce presented skills. However, there is no legal requirement to do so. Some employers or schools may have individual policies preferring or requiring hands-on skills practice.

Completing CPR training in an online or classroom environment does not guarantee that your resuscitation efforts will be effective if performed in an emergency environment.
