Three-year-old hospitalized after near-drowning in Hernando

A three-year old was airlifted to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg after nearly drowning in a pool Sunday afternoon in Hernando County, deputies said.

A family was visiting the home at 7521 Gordon Loop, Brooksville, where they were invited to go swimming. An adult went to grab something from a nearby shed shortly before 4 p.m. and thought the three-year-old was following close behind. The adult realized the child was not nearby, and instead found the three-year-old at the bottom of the pool, according to a news release.

The adult removed the child from the pool and called 911.

Hernando County Sheriff's Office deputies and fire rescue personnel responded to the scene and performed CPR.

The child was transported by ambulance to Bayfront Health Brooksville and then airlifted to All Children's Hospital. The condition of the child was not disclosed.

  3. Editorial: Senate bill sacrifices health care for tax cuts

    Editorials

    No wonder Senate Republicans drafted their health care legislation in secret. Beneath the surface, it looks no better than the House version that even President Donald Trump has called mean. This remains a massive tax cut for the wealthy at the expense of the poor, the middle class and the elderly, and it would cost …
