A South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch Patrol Officer was instrumental in the saving of a seven-year-old’s life after he rendered first aid to the boy who was discovered unconscious in a swimming pool.

According to the SACNW, on Saturday, December 10, 2011, a seven-year-old boy who was visiting from the mainland was discovered unconscious in a south island area swimming pool. His cousin managed to pull him out of the pool and call for assistance. As luck would have it Patrol Officer Coye, recently returned from a Bandage International First Responder (first aid) course that was held this past Thursday and Friday arrived on the scene within minutes.

Utilizing the first aid training, Coye managed to revive the boy who was quickly transported to the Dr. Otto Rodriguez Poly Clinic; fortunately a doctor and nurse were immediately available. After a quick assessment it was determined that the child should be admitted to the KHMH in Belize City for a night of observation.

Wow! That's great!

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Its the right and only decision to send all Neighborhood Watch Patrol Officers to the first aid course.

In Europe a first aid course is even mandatory if you like to obtain a driving license.

Great Job
