He had noticed near the Vienna City Beach Club that the child could no longer stay afloat and pulled it out of the Danube. Since the seven-year-old was no longer breathing, the lifeguard began resuscitation, after which the girl vomited a large amount of water and showed signs of life again, reported the Viennese professional rescue service.
The girl even regained consciousness by the time rescuers arrived. After stabilization and emergency medical care by several teams from the Vienna professional rescue service, the seven-year-old was taken to a Viennese clinic in a stable condition.
“The man acted really exemplary. With his quick action and correct first aid measures, the first aider undoubtedly saved the girl’s life,” said the Viennese professional rescue service.
